Acute portal vein thrombosis: an important mimic of malignancy on FDG PET/CT.
MedLine Citation:
PMID:  22679156     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The authors report a case of portal vein thrombosis, with no underlying malignant cause identified, which was initially detected by fludeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/CT (FDG PET/CT) and subsequently confirmed by both contrast enhanced CT and MRI. The multimodality imaging findings are outlined, the potential clinical implications discussed and note made of the possible FDG PET/CT mimics of this disorder.
