Figure 17 (A-C): Small cell lung cancer (limited stage). MIP image of an FDG PET study shows intense tracer concentration in the mediastinum (arrow, A) which corresponds to an FDG-avid soft tissue mass on CT and PET/CT (arrow in B and C) which extends into the mediastinum and appears to conglomerate and merge with the nodal disease (arrowheads, B). This is a typical radiological appearance of small cell cancers. No extrathoracic metastatic site is seen on the MIP image (A)
