Multi-Center Assessment of Infiltration Rates in FDG-PET/CT scans: Detection, Incidence, and Contributing Factors

“Since infiltrations can resolve during uptake and as the standard imaging FOV does not always capture the injection site, many infiltrations may go undetected. Infiltrations result in underestimated SUVs that can impact patient care emphasizing that it is important to monitor injection quality. Thus, identifying contributing factors associated with infiltrations may help stimulate quality improvements, reduce infiltration rates, and potentially improve patient care.”
