So, in short, I have NO idea what it means. These areas were never mentioned my any of my doctors. They only discssed the areas with the hypermetabolic activity. If anyone is interested the 'physiologic uptake' areas on my scan are: brain, large salivary glands, oropharynx and neck muscles. At the time of this scan I did have ongoing mouth sores.
The liver, spleen and bone marrow normally show homogenous low grade uptake. Bone marrow and spleen normally show less intense uptake than the liver. However, in patients receiving growth colony stimulating factor (GCSF), increased marrow and splenic activity are shown on FDG PET scans (Figure 6).
Interpretation of positron emission tomographic (PET) scans in the absence of correlative anatomic information can be challenging. PET–computed tomography (CT) fusion imaging is a novel multimodality technology that allows the correlation of findings from two concurrent imaging modalities in a comprehensive examination.
I had Melanoma stage 3 in 2007 on right lower calf. Had large excision and SLNB. SLNB showed one node was positive. All Cat Scans and ultra sound have been good. I had a Pet Scan done this week. Findings: Head/face Focal ssymetric hypermetabolism is inseperable from the right parotid and inferior right auditory canal, suv 5.0. physiologic FDG uptake is seen in the visualized
Uptake refers to parts of the body where the PET scanner shows that radioactive sugar is being absorbed. In some parts of the body and under certain conditions a certain level of absorption is normal (that would be what the radiologist report calls "physiologic" activity).
Abstract. PET is a molecular imaging modality used to assess metabolic activity. Little is known about the physiologic uptake of radiopharmaceuticals such as 18 F-FDG in healthy subjects. This study was designed to identify and describe normal patterns of physiologic uptake of 18 F-FDG in healthy adult subjects and to examine the influence of low-level muscle activity during the 18 F-FDG ...

What does this mean from PET scan? Physiologic uptake of the tracer within the brain, salivary glands, myocardium, GI, and GU tracts. There is extensive lymphadenopathy, throughout the neck, chest, abdomen, and pelvis, which demonstrate mildly increased metabolic activity.
What Is Physiological Activity? Physiological activity refers to the normal function of an organism. It may refer to specific organs or the organism as a whole. The act of a human eating, sleeping or even thinking is considered a physiological activity. Generally, physiology breaks into ten distinct systems that are essential to the human body ...
Positron emission tomography (PET) is a modern non-invasive imaging technique for quantification of radioactivity in vivo.It involves the intravenous injection of a positron-emitting radiopharmaceutical, waiting to allow for systemic distribution, and then scanning to detect and quantification of patterns of radiopharmaceutical accumulation in the body.
