Gilday Fig. 4. Tracheal and bronchial aspiration. 4 Technique – PET and PET/CT Imaging PET imaging is performed at a minimum of 40 min and preferably at 60 min after intravenous injection of FDG. The patient should be kept quiet at rest between FDG injection and beginning of the imaging study in order to prevent uptake in skeletal muscles that have been actively used during the FDG absorption period. All PET studies should be attenuation corrected to avoid artifactual low grade uptake in the lungs and near the skin surface; this is accomplished in older PET only studies by measuring attenuation of the 511 keV photons using an isotopic source, and in PET/CT scanners by using the absorption data generated by the CT scan.

5). FDG uptake in brown adipose tissue can be prevented by physical and pharmacological means in most patients. Warming the patient for 30–60 min prior to FDG injection has been used in some institutions (Garcia et al. 2004, 2006). A variety of medications may be used to prevent transmission of cold impulses through the hypothalamus. In children and adolescents, fentanyl and diazepam have been used, with an apparent reduction in incidence of brown adipose tissue uptake of FDG that is severe enough to create problems in scan interpretation (Barrington and Maisey 1996; Tatsumi et al.
