Figure 4: A 73-year-old man presenting with elevated CEA of 46 ng/ml. Fusion PET/CT images show diffuse homogenous hypermetabolic activity along the entire axial skeleton. No definite destructive lesion was identified on CT. Findings were interpreted as marrow hyperplasia due to chronic anemia. However, subsequent blood test revealed hyperparaproteinemia and bone marrow biopsy revealed plasma cell myeloma
