Abstract OBJECTIVE: Positron emission tomography (PET) with FDG is useful for tumor imaging, but false-positive results can occur. The purpose of this study is to describe three oncology patients with sacral fractures in whom FDG uptake in the sacrum increased on PET. CONCLUSION: Sacral fractures can show increased uptake of FDG on PET. Therefore, correlative cross-sectional imaging is necessary to avoid the erroneous diagnosis of sacral metastases on PET and prevent inappropriate treatment of patients.
