Figure 15 (A-D): Incremental value of FDG PET/CT in baseline staging. MIP image of FDG PET scan shows intense tracer concentration in the right hemithorax (arrow, A) corresponding to a right lung mass (arrow, B). Also seen are two FDG-avid foci in the abdomen (arrowheads, A) which correspond to peritoneal metastatic deposits (arrowhead, C). Note that the peritoneal deposit is almost indistinguishable from adjacent bowel (arrowhead, D). Due to PET/CT findings, the intent of treatment changes from curative surgery of a resectable mass to palliative chemotherapy
