Figure 1: Eight millicurie of 18F FDg was injected in the patient in euglycaemic status and whole body PET/CT imaging commenced 60 min after the injection. Fig. 1A represents CT transaxial image, Fig. 1B depicts PET transaxial image, Fig. 1C shows Fused PET/CT image and Fig. 1D shows MIP (maximum intensity projection) image showing abnormal FDg uptake in bilateral adrenal glands with no other focus of abnormal FDg uptake elsewhere in rest of PET/CT survey. Arrows depict isolated FDg avid bilateral enlarged adrenal glands (right adrenal measures 4.4 × 1.8 cm while left adrenal measures about 4.5 × 2.4 cm). Metabolic activity was measured by a semiquantitative index known as standard uptake value (sUV) Maximum and was found to be 14.3 g/ml in both adrenal glands. In Fig 1 A - L depicts liver.
