11C-Methionine: Rare Diseases
A 55-year-old male patient was referred for a 11C-methionine PET/CT scan for better characterization and then for accurately staging a left basal pulmonary mass detected on CT scan. The scan demonstrated an area of increased tracer uptake in the left pulmonary lesion (Fig. 67.1). He subsequently underwent left lower lobectomy, and the final diagnosis was adenocarcinoma.
