Metastatic Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer

57 year old male with widely metastatic non small cell lung cancer. PET/CT ordered for restaging.

There are large bilateral adrenal masses with markedly increased FDG activity (maximum SUV 8.9, average SUV 3.9) consistent with metastases. These masses demonstrate hypometabolism in their central aspects compatible with central necrosis. Metastatic hilar and mediastinal lymphadenopathy can also be seen in the coronal image.

In addition, there is increased FDG activity within multiple vertebrae (maximum SUV 5.1 with an average SUV of 4.2) compatible with metastatic disease.
