Figure 2 F-18 fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography images of a gastric cancer patient with minimally increased F-18 fluorodeoxyglucose uptake of bone marrow. A: Maximum intensity projection; B and C: Coronal and transaxial PET images; D: Transaxial CT image; E: Fused transaxial PET/CT image of a 75-year-old woman with advanced gastric cancer. Focal intensely increased FDG uptake was observed in the primary tumor lesion of stomach with Tmax of 7.57 (arrow). BM SUV and BLR were 1.12 and 0.54, respectively. The patient underwent total gastrectomy. The patient is still alive without cancer recurrence with a follow-up period of 35.5 mo. PET/CT: Positron emission tomography/computed tomography; FDG: F-18 fluorodeoxyglucose; BM: Bone marrow; BLR: BM-to-liver uptake ratio.
