Indications of whole body F-18 fluorodeoxyglucose (F-18 FDG) PET/CT include differentiation of benign from malignant lesions, staging in patients with known malignancies, monitoring the effect of therapy, detecting tumor recurrence, selecting regions for biopsy and guiding radiation therapy planning, and searching for an unknown primary tumor in patients with metastatic disease or paraneoplastic syndrome.
