FDG: Rare Findings
A 56-year-old female patient was referred for an FDG PET/CT scan (Fig. 77.1) during the follow-up of a dedifferentited pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor. She was also affected by portal thrombosis. The scan was negative for neuroendocrine tumor relapse, but areas of increased uptake in the portal tree were detected. This was consistent with thrombosis.
