BRAIN: No significant metabolic abnormality is noted on this
HEAD AND NECK:
Physiologic activity is appreciated. There is focal minimally
increased activity involving a right submantle cutaneous nodule or
lymph node, transaxial slice 54, SUV 1.1. Correlation is advised.
There is no evidence right or left cervical chain hypermetabolic
There is bilateral mild hypermetabolic hilar lymphoma, left greater
than right: transaxial slices 91-94 with SUV 2.6 on the right and
transaxial slices 86-87 with SUV 3 on the left. There is a
hypermetabolic prevascular mass: transaxial slices 82-84, SUV 5.6.
Examination of the bilateral lungs is negative for abnormal
increased FDG uptake. Physiologic cardiac activity is appreciated.
There is no evidence of supraclavicular or axillary metabolic
There is a hypermetabolic pelvic sidewall complex mass which erodes
the adjacent left acetabulum: transaxial slices 174-194, SUV 9.5.
There is focal mildly increased activity involving left abdominal
wall soft tissue, transaxial slice 182, SUV 3.4. There is no
definite CT correlate. Hypermetabolic left inguinal
lymphadenopathy, transaxial slices 184-195, SUV 7.2.
There is focal increased FDG uptake involving a left scrotal mass:
transaxial slices 213-214, SUV 3.4. There is focal increased
activity involving the superficial tissue of the right scrotum,
transaxial slice 215, SUV 2.8. This is the only finding on the
right and may represent physiological inflammatory activity.
Clinical correlation is advised.
There are multiple too numerous to count hypermetabolic foci and
soft tissue masses involving the left thigh and left lobe.
Representative transaxial slices are as follows: slice 205 with
SUV 6.2; slice 212, SUV 5.1; slice 216, SUV 2.7; slice 225, SUV
5.6; slice 231, SUV 3.6; slice 237, SUV 3.8 posterior and lateral;
transaxial slice 237-238 with SUV 3.7, deep, no CT correlate. Also
of note is the medial aspect of the distal 1/4 of the left leg.
This region contains the greatest amount of activity that it has
multiple contiguous and confluent foci: representative transaxial
slice 162 on the lower extremity series, SUV 25.9.
The region of the liver, spleen, gastrointestinal tract and urinary
system shows physiologic activity. There is focal increased FDG
uptake involving the right mesenteric soft tissue mass on lymph
node, transaxial slices 129-132, SUV 4.1.
