Figure 5 :A 58-year-old male was diagnosed to have lung carcinoma (moderately differentiated adenocarcinoma) with nodal involvement and underwent right lung tumor resection in March 2006. CT scan of the thorax showed a cavitating lesion in the right lung. PET-CT was requested for restaging of primary lung cancer post operation. PET-CT showed a focal area of increased FDG uptake measuring 3.2 x 2.3 cm with maximum SUV of 14 in the right paratracheal region (4R) which is consistent with tumor involvement due to lymphatic spread
