Figure 1 Two patients with different fluorodeoxyglucose avidity. A: 49-year-old male patient with multicentric hepatocellular carcinoma and a dominant lesion in the dome of the liver as evident on axial and sagittal views from an arterial phase computed tomography (CT) scan of the abdomen, and was not fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG)-avid on the corresponding positron emission tomography (PET)/CT scan. The patient had a history of rectal cancer and the PET/CT scan was to evaluate newly diagnosed liver lesions; B: 58-year-old male patient with history of diverticulosis, CT scan showed extensive involvement of the left lobe and the corresponding PET/CT scan showed FDG-avid disease with SUVmax of 20.
