Solitary Nodule

86 year old male with solitary left lung nodule. PET/CT ordered for evaluation.

There is increased FDG activity in a pulmonary parenchymal mass in the left upper lobe (maximum SUV 4.8 and average SUV 3.1) compatible with a primary lung malignancy. There is also increased activity within a large left hilar lymph node (maximum SUV 7.1 and average SUV 4.9) compatible with metastatic lymphadenopathy.


In addition, there is increased FDG activity (maximum SUV of 3.0 with an average SUV of 2.3) within an intramedullary soft tissue density in the proximal left humerus, highly suspicious for metastatic osseous involvement.
