Figure 5: Whole-body tumor, lymph node, and metastasis staging: in a case of a 68-year-old male with cholangiocarcinoma. Positron emission tomography maximum intensity projection image (a) along with spatially correlated magnetic resonance images of whole body (not shown) excluded any distant metastasis. Regional positron emission tomography/magnetic resonance imaging shows eccentric thickening of the medial wall of duodenum in axial T1 turbo spin-echo (b) enhancing in postcontrast volumetric interpolated breath-held (c) with increased fluorodeoxyglucose uptake and no active regional nodes in axial fused positron emission tomography/magnetic resonance imaging image (d). Coronal maximum intensity projection magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography images (e) showing abrupt cutoff of bile signal. Triple phase contrast-enhanced angiography: arterial (f) and venous (g) anatomy maximum intensity projection images shows no tumor infiltration of vessels and normal flow in specific membrane antigen and the portal vein
