Description A 71-year-old lady was incidentally found to have a coin lesion on a chest X-ray. Thoracic CT confirmed the presence of a 1.0 cm solitary pulmonary nodule. The initial FDG-PET study shown here (Philips Allegro system) reveals a small retrocardiac focus of increased FDG uptake within the left lower lobe nodule (thin arrow) suggestive of a malignant process. In addition, the study demonstrates abnormal increased activity at the gastro-oesophageal junction (thick arrow). The patient was found to have non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma at both sites.
