Abstract

Renal cell carcinoma has a variable uptake of F-FDG resulting in poor sensitivity and limited clinical application. There is intense interest in improved molecular imaging of this condition. We present a case of a 64-year-old man with known metastatic renal cell carcinoma found to have intense uptake of Rb but not F-FDG in multiple thoracic metastases seen on imaging performed to assess myocardial hibernation.
