Coronal (left), sagittal (middle) and transverse views of PET scans of two patients after treatment for pulmonary tuberculosis. The first patient (ac) has a residual nodule in the right upper lobe showing minimally increased FDG avidity. The second patient (df) has a complex lesion in the left upper lobe with mild FDG avidity. The auto-delineated metabolic lesion volume is overlaid using ascending Z-score thresholds, respectively at Z = 7 (a, d), Z = 8 (b, e) and Z = 9 (c, f)
