Radiographic PET/CT staging of lesions. The delayed enhancement PET scan shows 18-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) uptake over time. Metabolically active organs such as the bladder, kidneys, testicles and brain show increased uptake normally. a Initial staging PET/CT showing lesions in the bilateral humeri, claviculi, distal femurs, proximal tibias, pelvis, and spine. b 6-month re-staging PET/CT showing regression of lesions in bilateral femurs, right shoulder, and multiple levels of the thoracic spine consistent with a chemotherapeutic response. c 9-month re-staging PET/CT showing multifocal progression of osseous lesions
