ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Ulcerative Colitis

History: Patient presents with clinical manifestations of active and previously known inflammatory bowel disease.

Findings: F18 FDG PET-CT showed continuous large bowel and rectum uptake that extends continuously to the mid transverse colon. The activity is circumferential and superficial within the involved bowel and correspinds to thickened and edematous bowel on simultaenously-acquired CT imaging.

Ddx: Infectious Colitis Ischemic Colits Crohn's Disease Lymphoma

Dxhow: Characteristic Imaging Findings Previous Endoscopically-Performed Biopsy

No MeSH data available.


Coronal MIP image shows the extent of the continuous metabolically active disease (increased radiotracer uptake)  that begins in the rectum and terminates proximally and abruptly at the mid-transverse colon.  Normal physiologic bowel activity would not be this strikingly continuous.  Note also the diffusely increased skeletal activity, which is likely a drug-related response.
