PET-CT images of the chest and head. (A) 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose PET image of the chest and head demonstrates multiple 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose–avid masses in the mid and anterior chest (black arrow). (B) Representative slices of fused PET-CT images show the 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose–avid right upper lobe lung mass and hilar and mediastinal lymph nodes. (C) Fused PET-CT image of the brain demonstrates reduced uptake in the cerebellar cortices (white arrows), suggestive of hypometabolism.
