Timely identification of metastatic complications of bloodstream infections due to spreading of the microorganisms to distant sites, although critical, is often difficult. As 18F-FDG accumulates in activated leukocytes in infectious lesions, 18F-FDG PET represents a promising imaging technique in these patients. The aim of this study was to assess the value of 18F-FDG PET in detecting infectious foci in patients at high risk of metastatic complications.pmid:16330565 fatcat:62zmrdssbzfvbm4mt24vfjwfle
