Figure 2: Normal appearance (no fluorodeoxyglucose uptake) of a postsurgical flap. A 60-year-old gentleman, squamous cell carcinoma of the right lower alveolus. Underwent right hemi-mandibulectomy with pectoralis major myocutaneous flap. Fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/contrast-enhanced computed tomography was done 12 weeks after surgery. The axial fused positron emission tomography/computed tomography and computed tomography images show the pectoralis major myocutaneous flap with no increased fluorodeoxyglucose uptake (arrow in a and b). The flap is a fat-density structure having sharp boundaries with adjacent structures. CECT image in b, showing no enhancing soft tissue mass.
