Abstract

Based on limited reports, fungal lesions can have remarkably high intensity uptake of 2-deoxy-2-[18F]fluoro-D-glucose (FDG) on positron emission tomography (PET) images. The purpose of this investigation was to compare the standardized uptake value (SUV) of naturally occurring lesions of blastomycosis with the SUV of naturally occurring lymphoma in a series of dogs.
