Figure 1

Biodistribution of FDG. Coronal PET, PET/CT fusion, and CT images demonstrating prominent subcutaneous white adipose tissue metabolic activity throughout the thorax, abdomen, and pelvis (arrows). More intense metabolic activity uptake was observed in intra-abdominal fat (arrow). Intense gastric and myocardial uptake combined with low hepatic and negligible muscle uptake was observed.
