18 F-Fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography/computed tomography (18 FDG PET/CT) has shown an increasing role in the evaluation of urinary bladder cancer, though benign pathological processes of the urinary bladder can also result in increased FDG uptake. Leiomyomas of urinary bladder are benign mesenchymal neoplasms and a very rare bladder tumor comprising <0.5% of all bladder tumors. Here, we present the low-grade 18 FDG uptake in urinary bladder leiomyoma on PET/CT done for the clinical suspicion of bladder cancer, which can be a rare differential for bladder carcinoma...

Prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) expression has been shown in neovasculature of various malignancies. Recurrent medullary thyroid cancer (MTC) is difficult to treat. We present the findings on PSMA-positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) of a 68-year-old man with MTC, who presented with a recurrent left paratracheal mass and rising calcitonin. The scan revealed significant uptake on PSMA imaging but not on 68 Ga-DOTANOC PET/CT. 177 Lu-PRRT is one of the therapeutic options in patients with recurrent MTC, but in this case was not possible due to lack of somatostatin receptor expression...

Carotid body tumors, although representing about 65% of head and neck paragangliomas, are rare neoplasms. Doppler ultrasonography, contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CECT), and MRI have been routinely used in the diagnosis of carotid body tumor. We hereby represent a case of 56-year-old male suspected to have lymph node metastasis from carcinoma pyriform sinus detected as carotid body tumor in fluorodeoxyglucose positron-emission tomography-CECT imaging and subsequently confirmed by histopathology.

We present the case of a 47-year-old female with metastatic pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor (NET). The patient was treated with long-acting octreotide which failed to halt disease progression. The patient was being considered for 177Lu-peptide receptor radionuclide therapy, and a 68Ga-DOTANOC positron emission tomography-computed tomography (PET-CT) was acquired initially, which showed good uptake in the primary and metastatic lesions. Metastatic pancreatic NETs have limited treatment options, and given the background that these tumors are highly vascular and prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) expression is known in the endothelium of tumor neovasculature, we decided to perform a 68Ga-PSMA-HBED-CC PET-CT scan...

Brown tumors are an uncommon entity associated with hyperparathyroidism. Initially described with primary hyperparathyroidism, with the widespread use of dialysis, they were also seen to be associated with secondary and tertiary hyperparathyroidism. These are lytic, expansile lesions causing bony pains, and depending on the size and extent, skeletal dysmorphism. The present case illustrates the detection of parathyroid adenoma with multiple brown tumors on 99m Tc-sestamibi parathyroid scintigraphy in a patient presenting with facial dysmorphism and multiple bony pains...

The most common reason for intraluminal urinary bladder hematoma is trauma. However in gynecological and pelvic malignancies, the pelvic irradiation can affect non targeted organs resulting in urogenital complications like hematoma. Small size hematoma can be easily diagnosed in ultrasound. Large hematoma can mimic as neoplastic mass in imaging modalities. We present here an intresting image of intraluminal urinary bladder mass, where FDG PET CT was helpful to diagnose it as a non neoplastic mass.

We present a case of a 42-year-old male patient affected by unresectable, chemorefractory cholangiocarcinoma, with prior placement of biliary stent. Because of the absence of extrahepatic metastases, he was submitted to liver-direct therapy with 90 Y-microspheres. 18 F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography-computed tomography (FDG PET-CT) performed before the procedure showed intense tracer uptake in the hepatic lesion and along the biliary stent. The patient underwent radioembolization with 90 Y-resin spheres (1...

Tc-99m labeled red blood cell (RBC) scintigraphy is commonly used in the evaluation of acute gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding. On Tc-99m RBC studies, GI bleeding is seen as an initial focus of increased radiotracer activity that on subsequent images increases in intensity and changes position in a pattern that confirms to segments of bowel. We report a case of a patient with multiple episodes of GI bleeding referred to detect the source of bleeding. A Tc-99m labeled RBC scan was performed and the findings showed a focal abnormal hot spot in the mid quadrant of the abdomen, seen promptly in initial dynamic images...

The gamut of gallium labeled radiopharmaceuticals contributes to augmented variety in molecular imaging approach for in vivo identification of tumor characteristics. The spectrum ranges from somatostatin receptor based target-specific imaging agents, to those used for tumor imaging based on specific receptor types extending into ones used for therapeutic monitoring. The versatility of gallium chemistry provides the needed advantage for imaging which is further exploited in clinical practice influences the specificity of tumor imaging...

Goiter and hyperthyroidism are fairly common problems in the Indian population. We present a 49-year-old female who presented with thyroid swelling and suppressed thyroid-stimulating hormone. On evaluation, she was having latent hyperthyroidism with diffuse and soft thyroid swelling. During the evaluation for feasibility of radioiodine ablation, she was found to have thyrolipomatosis on computed tomography. She was counseled for total thyroidectomy and subsequently underwent the same with histopathology confirming the presence of fatty infiltration into the thyroid stroma...

Primary malignancies of the salivary gland itself are uncommon, while secondary metastatic deposits are further very rare with description of only few case reports in the literature. The most common site of metastatic deposit to parotid gland is from squamous cell malignancies of head and neck, while secondary deposits from primary in infraclavicular location are very rarely described. We herein describe the case of an elderly lady who while on adjuvant endocrine therapy developed metastatic disease with right intraparotid node as the sole site of metastasis detected on FDG PET scan...

Castleman's disease (CD) is a rare benign lymphoproliferative disorder. We are presenting three cases of CD of which one is unicentric CD, and the other two are an idiopathic multicentric CD. One of the two multicentric cases is associated with POEMS syndrome. The whole body 18 F-Fluorodeoxyglucose positron-emission tomography-computed tomography scan plays a significant role in identifying the centricity, distribution of disease, response to therapy, and in early detection of remission.

Poorly differentiated thyroid carcinomas (PDTC) are a subgroup of thyroid cancers with aggressive behavior and worse prognosis compared to the well DTC. Limited diagnostic tools and therapeutic options exist for such cases, and the appropriate management algorithm continues to evolve in this subgroup. They pose difficulty in clinical management due to their behavioral heterogeneity and increased occurrence of aggressive clinical behavior underlining the need for management individualization. In the present communication, a case series of three clinically challenging cases of PDTC (with low serum thyroglobulin (Tg) and iodine nonavidity) are presented with a discourse on their management intrigues, unresolved issues and the requirement of a distinctive management protocol...
