Noncontrast CT scan of the liver (A) during a percutaneous biopsy showing an area of subtle hypodensity which is nearly indistinct from the rest of the liver parenchyma. CT scan (B) shows the needle in place. The accuracy of positioning in the metabolically active lesion is confirmed on the fused PET/CT image (C). The diagnosis was an inflammatory lesion

Axial fused PET/CT image in a 57-year-old woman demonstrates a necrotic mass in the right lobe of the liver and a small focus of increased metabolic activity along the wall, which is more along the medial aspect. CT scan (B) shows the needle tip in place. The accuracy of positioning of the needle tip in the most metabolically active medial portion is confirmed on the axial fused PET/CT image. The diagnosis was hepatoma

Figure 1 (A,B). From: PET/CT guidance for percutaneous fine needle aspiration cytology/biopsy.

Axial fused PET/CT chest image in a 60-year-old man demonstrates a large left lung mass with relatively little metabolic activity in the easily accessible peripheral area. Plain CT scan (B) at the same level shows the lack of distinction between the metabolically active and inactive regions. The needle (arrow) is directed toward the metabolically more active focus. The diagnosis was carcinoma
