From: 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT for the detection of inflammation of large arteries: correlation with18F-FDG, calcium burden and risk factors

Figure 3

Focal uptake of FDG but not DOTATATE in the vessel wall. Transverse PET/CT images of a 77-year-old male patient. With hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, history of coronary disease and a family history of cardiovascular disease. Intense 18F-FDG uptake can be observed in the aortic arch (upper row), whereas no focally increased 68Ga-DOTATATE uptake can be seen (lower row). TBRDOTATATE was 1.64, while TRBFDG was 2.50.
