[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: We present the case of a 62-year-old man with colorectal carcinoma with unusual segmental myocardial 18 F-FDG uptake. PET/CT scan was requested for evaluating response to chemotherapy before surgery. Bull’ se ye, short axis (SA) and vertical long axis (VLA) slices of 18 F-FDG showed an inferior segmental FDG hypermetabolism with no significant uptake in other myocardial wall. A rest tetrofosmin myocardial scintigraphy showed inferior myocardial hypoperfusion mismatch congruent with the segmental FDG uptake. Coronary angiography demonstrated a very narrow proximal right coronary artery stenosis treated with percutaneous angioplasty.
