Only two patients with malignant pleural disease did not show increased FDG uptake. FDG-PET imaging showed an absence of FDG uptake and correctly classified 31 of 35 benign lesions. 8%. Despite these impressive results, definitive diagnosis can only be achieved through histologic confirmation. IMPLICATIONS FOR STAGING OF FDG-PET Studies examining the role of FDG-PET in assessing nodal status are conflicting. Benard et al. evaluated 28 consecutive patients with suspected pleural diffuse malignant mesothelioma by FDG-PET imaging and found hypermetabolic lymph node involvement in 12 patients, 9 of which appeared normal on CT scan.
