Anterior layering of excreted F-18-FDG in the bladder on PET/CT: Frequency and cause AMERICAN JOURNAL OF ROENTGENOLOGY Purcell, D. D., Coakley, F. V., Franc, B. L., Hawkins, R. A., Boddington, S. E., Yeh, B. M. 2007; 189 (2): W96–W99


The objective of our study was to determine the frequency and cause of anterior layering of excreted 18F-FDG in the bladder on PET/CT.Anterior layering of excreted FDG in the bladder is commonly seen on PET/CT scans obtained with i.v. iodinated contrast material and is due to displacement of FDG by excreted iodinated contrast material; this phenomenon may unmask FDG-avid bladder disease.
