Incidental 18F-Fluorocholine Uptake in an Esophageal Diverticulum: 18F-FCH in an Esophageal Diverticulum.


:F-fluorocholine has recently emerged as a very sensitive agent for seeking parathyroid adenomas. We represent a case with esophageal diverticulum incidentally detected on F-fuorocholine PET/CT, which should be kept in mind as a reason of false positivity in primary hyperparathyroidism.

  • Indium-111 leukocyte accumulation in submandibular gland saliva as a cause for false-positive gut uptake in children.

    abstract::Unexplained false-positive accumulation of In-111 leukocyte in the gastrointestinal tract has been reported previously. In a pediatric population, uptake in the submandibular gland was noted in 19 of 42 children. This is believed to be a normal finding in children that is not seen in adults. In some of these 19 childr...
