Abstract Functional imaging techniques in nuclear medicine provide crucial diagnostic information in a variety of clinical settings that are encountered regularly in orthopaedic practice. It is important that the orthopaedic surgeon is aware of the modalities on offer and appreciates the relative strengths and limitations of these techniques. This article will describe the physical principles underlying nuclear medicine imaging with single-photon and positron-emitting radiotracers. It will then ...

With the increasing utilization of integrated positron-emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) using the glucose analogue 2-[18F]-fluoro-2-deoxy- d- glucose (FDG) in oncological imaging, it is important for radiologists and nuclear medicine physicians to be aware that FDG uptake is not specific for malignancy, as many different physiological variants and benign pathological conditions can also exhibit increased glucose metabolism. Such false-positive FDG uptake often arises outside the ...

Sarcoidosis is a multisystem granulomatous disorder of unknown aetiology. The diagnosis is suggested on the basis of wide ranging clinical and radiological manifestations, and is supported by the histological demonstration of non-caseating granulomas in affected tissues. This review highlights the multisystem radiological features of the disease across a variety of imaging methods including multidetector computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) as well as functional radionuclid...

Integrated positron-emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) with 2-[ 18 F]-fluoro-2-deoxy- d- glucose (FDG) has revolutionized oncological imaging in recent years and now has a firmly established role in a variety of tumour types. There have been simultaneous step-wise advances in scanner technology, which are yet to be exploited to their full potential in clinical practice. This article will review these technological developments and explore how refinements in imaging protocols can fu...

Integrated positron emission tomography/CT (PET/CT) with 2-[ 18 F]fluoro-2-deoxy-d-glucose (FDG) is a hybrid imaging modality which has recently become established in the staging, restaging and therapy response assessment of oncology patients. FDG PET/CT has several recognised applications in colorectal cancer (CRC) imaging including preoperative evaluation of apparently limited metastatic disease, detection of disease recurrence, clarification of equivocal lesions at initial staging, investigat...

The emergence of hybrid imaging, combining anatomical computed tomography (CT) and functional scintigraphic imaging has increased the armoury of techniques available to image disease. Single photon emission computed tomography/CT (SPECT/CT) is a dual modality technique which increases the sensitivity and specificity of existing radionuclide imaging and helps characterise equivocal lesions detected by other imaging methods. In addition to the many established clinical applications for SPECT/CT, t...

Aim To evaluate the prevalence of sarcoid-like reaction to malignancy detected using integrated 2-[18F]-fluoro-2-deoxy- d- glucose (FDG) positron-emission tomography and computed tomography (PET/CT) in patients undergoing staging or restaging of solid-organ malignancy. Materials and methods A systematic search was performed using the institutional radiology information system of 2048 consecutive PET/CT examinations performed in cancer patients at a tertiary-referral centre. Cases that were consi...
