Figure 1: A 40-year-old female with pyrexia of unknown origin underwent 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography for localization of infective foci. The maximum intensity projection image (a) shows pixelation rendering it due to extravasation of radiotracer in the right hand region, rendering it uninterpretable. Maximum intensity projection image (e) obtained post correction after reducing axial field of view was free of artifact. The transaxial image quality at the level of brain, abdomen, and pelvis was not affected before (b-d) and after correction (f-h) of positron emission tomography data
