Total Eclipse of FDG-PET Scan

In routine oncological 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET/CT) scan, the patients rest in a quite, dimly lit room for 60 minutes after intravenous (IV) injection of FDG and they are instructed not to move during this time (uptake phase) before FDG-PET/CT scanning to prevent and decrease unwanted FDG accumulations on muscle traces caused by muscle movements.
