Knowledge of the PET imaging findings of osseous spinal neoplasms is essential, because they are common incidental findings on PET scans done for staging of unrelated primary malignancies. Additionally, PET can help differentiate lesions that are not clearly defined by anatomic modalities alone. PET can also be used for follow-up of aggressive tumors to assess response to treatment, often proving superior to CT or MR imaging alone for this purpose. This review discusses the role of PET/CT and PET/MR imaging in the diagnosis and management of primary benign and malignant osseous tumors of the spine...

2-Deoxy-2-[18 F]fluoroglucose (FDG) uptake in muscle is influenced by many normal physiologic processes and can also indicate pathology. Variability in physiologic uptake can be reduced with proper patient preparation, allowing for a better determination of abnormal activity. Although malignant diseases, such as rhabdomyosarcoma and skeletal muscle metastasis, are clear applications of FDG-PET/CT, there may be additional applications in infection and benign inflammatory disorders that warrant further research...

In vivo molecular imaging detects biologic processes at molecular level and provides diagnostic information at an earlier time point during disease onset or repair. It offers definite advantage over anatomic imaging in terms of improved sensitivity and ability to quantify. Radionuclide molecular imaging has been widely used in clinical practice. This article discusses the role of radionuclide imaging in various infective and inflammatory diseases affecting musculoskeletal system with a focus on PET. It appears that, as more data become available, combined PET/MR imaging could emerge as a front runner in the imaging of musculoskeletal infection and inflammation...

An imbalance in bone remodeling results in many metabolic bone diseases, such as osteoporosis. fluorine-18 sodium fluoride PET imaging allows the assessment of bone remodeling process in a anatomy specific manner. On the other hand structural imaging modalities such as MRI can now generate high resolution images of bone including the trabecular and cortical microstructure. Molecular (functional) imaging with PET in conjunction with structural imaging has the potential to improve the way metabolic bone diseases are managed in the clinic...

Fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (18F-FDG-PET/CT) is the imaging method of choice in sarcoma patients. PET may help in diagnosis, grading, staging, biopsy guidance, monitoring response to therapy, restaging for recurrence, and prognosis. 18F-FDG-PET/MRI combines the higher tissue contrast of MRI in the study of soft-tissue lesions and the peculiarities of PET imaging that allow the characterization of tissues. The use of 18F-FDG-PET/MRI in these patients has reduces the radiation dose, which is of great importance, particularly in children...

Conventional modalities, such as bone scintigraphy, are commonly used to assess osseous abnormalities in skeletal metastasis. Fluorine-18 (18 F)-sodium fluoride (NaF) PET similarly portrays osteoblastic activity but with improved spatial and contrast resolution and more accurate anatomic localization. However, these modalities rely on indirect evidence for tumor activity. PET imaging with 18 F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) and tumor-specific tracers may have an increased role by directly portraying the metabolic activity of cancer cells, which are often seeded in bone marrow and cause osseous disease after initial latency...

Bone metastases are a common source of osseous malignancy in the skeleton and affect up to 70% of all cancer patients. Hybrid imaging modalities including positron emission tomography (PET)/computed tomography (CT) and PET/MRI play an increasing role for the detection and follow-up of metastatic disease, especially in monitoring treatment response upon local or systemic therapy. This review summarizes current applications of PET/CT and PET/MRI in the clinical setting for imaging of metastases.

A number of PET agents are useful for evaluation of skeletal metastatic disease, and have significant advantages over 99mTc-MDP scintigraphy, including superior diagnostic accuracy, higher spatial resolution, and shorter imaging times- often with the ability to depict soft tissue local recurrence and metastasis in the same examination. While these agents have excellent diagnostic utility, they are not 100% specific for skeletal metastasis, and so normal patterns of biodistribution, benign osseous lesions that may demonstrate radiotracer uptake, and the significance of morphologic changes on CT such as osteolysis or osteosclerosis must be kept in mind to ensure accurate interpretation...

Although computed tomography (CT) and MR imaging alone have been used extensively to evaluate various musculoskeletal disorders, hybrid imaging modalities of PET-CT and PET-MR imaging were recently developed, combining the advantages of each method: molecular information from PET and anatomical information from CT or MR imaging. Furthermore, different radiotracers can be used in PET to uncover different disease mechanisms. In this article, potential applications of PET-CT and PET-MR imaging for benign musculoskeletal disorders are organized by benign cell proliferation/dysplasia, diabetic foot complications, joint prostheses, degeneration, inflammation, and trauma, metabolic bone disorders, and pain (acute and chronic) and peripheral nerve imaging...

Primary bone malignancies are characterized with anatomic imaging. However, in recent years, there has been an increased interest in PET/computed tomography scanning and PET/MRI with fludeoxyglucose F 18 for evaluating and staging musculoskeletal neoplasms. These hybrid imaging modalities have shown promise largely owing to their high sensitivity, ability to perform more thorough staging, and ability to monitor treatment response. This article reviews the current role of PET/computed tomography scanning and PET/MRI in primary malignancies of bone, with an emphasis on imaging characteristics, clinical usefulness, and current limitations...

Soft tissue sarcomas (STSs) account for less than 1% of adult solid tumors and about 7% of pediatric malignancies, causing 2% of cancer-related deaths. With the advent of PET-computed tomography (CT), the value of (18) fluorine-2-fluoro-2-deoxy-d-glucose (FDG) PET imaging to improve the management of STSs has been explored. FDG PET imaging has been found useful in restaging and treatment response assessment. This article reviews current knowledge and application of FDG PET-CT in initial diagnosis, staging, restaging, treatment response monitoring, and prognosis, with a brief overview of the most common histologic subtypes of STS...

A wide range of musculoskeletal processes can demonstrate increased uptake on PET-computed tomography (CT) with fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) F 18, including reactive, benign neoplastic, inflammatory, traumatic, posttreatment, and arthritic conditions that may mimic malignancy. In addition, physiologic causes of increased FDG uptake such as asymmetric muscle use and presence of brown fat can lead to increased FDG uptake and potential false-positive results. This article presents various case examples of non-malignant musculoskeletal hypermetabolism on 18F-FDG PET-CT and describes useful tools to avoid the potential pitfall of misinterpreting these as malignancy...
