Discussion Primary CNS tumors constitute 1% to 2% of all malignancies with more than half (55%) being malignant. Gliomas are the most common. High-grade glioma, Grade III and IV histologically, are more FDG-avid than low-grade (Grade I and II) tumors. CT and MR are nonspecific at the surgical site. The contrast enhancement is commonly seen within days after surgery and will persist for several months.

5 cm left infrahilar lesion is mildly hypermetabolic. An adjacent linear opacity, possibly atelectasis extends inferolaterally to the pleural surface. Bilateral dependent atelectasis is seen posteriorly and there is minimal left apical scarring. Calcified precarinal, right hilar, right paratracheal lymph nodes due to old granulomatous disease are mildly hypermetabolic. The stomach activity is physiologic. There is intense hypermetabolism in the posterior wall of the lower rectum associated with wall thickening on CT.

1C History 25-year-old male who has a history of testicular cancer status post left orchiectomy. A prior PET scan showed extensive metastatic disease above and below the diaphragm. A follow-up PET scan, post therapy, showed significant improvement with minimal findings in the abdomen suspicious for some residual disease. He was treated further with chemotherapy.
