Abstract

Objective: F-18-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (F-18-FDG PET/CT) not only gives information about anatomical features of lung lesions but also about their metabolic activity. This study aimed to determine the mediastinal and parenchymal pathologies of the lung with false-positive FDG involvement and characteristics that could benefit differential diagnosis.
