Abstract

Objective: During PET/CT chest interpretation the imager may encounter non-malignant positive findings originating from physiologic variants, inflammation, infection, iatrogenic causes, post-surgical/post-therapeutic changes and benign tumors of different components of the thorax. This article illustrates and raises the awareness of these benign FDG-avid findings.
Conclusion: Knowledge of the benign FDG-avid findings of the thorax will help the imager to provide an accurate PET/CT interpretation and to avoid false-positive diagnosis of malignancy.
