Metastatic choriocarcinoma with tumor thrombus in the right atrium and pulmonary vessels: diagnosis and therapy monitoring with F-18 fluorodeoxyglucose PET/CT.
Cell phones were placed on the left and right ears and brain imaging was performed with positron emission tomography (PET) with (18F) fluorodeoxyglucose injection, used to measure brain glucose metabolism twice, once with the right cell phone activated (sound muted) for 50 minutes ("on" condition) and once with both cell phones deactivated ("off" condition).
