42 year old man with lung cancer. PETCT showed metastases in the scapula, rib, thoracic vertebrae & liver.
Some pointers for lung cancer:
1. Bone metastases can be assessed with PETCT whereby FDG PET provides more specific information than standard bone scans.
2. Whole body PETCT detects unexpected distant metastases in about 10% of all lung cancer patients.
