Abstract

Objective This study was performed to show the malignant potential and clinical value of incidental focal F-18-fluorodeoxyglucose (F-18-FDG) uptake on positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) with the confirmation of histopathologic findings or with a series of consequent correlative imaging methods.
