Therapy control in a patient with an inflammatory abdominal aneurysm: potential pitfalls in PET/CT imaging


Husmann, Lars; Huellner, Martin W; Hasse, Barbara (2020). Therapy control in a patient with an inflammatory abdominal aneurysm: potential pitfalls in PET/CT imaging. Clinical Nuclear Medicine, 45(6):e288-e289.

Abstract

We present a case of inflammatory abdominal arterial aneurysms, which demonstrates the potential usefulness of PET/CT with F-FDG in long-term monitoring of this disease, but also demonstrates potential pitfalls in abdominal arterial aneurysm imaging with PET/CT. Imaging may be challenged as the initial presentation prior to therapy may mimic an infected aneurysm. Follow-up images may be mistaken for vascular graft infection or persistent disease.
