Figure 2: (a) 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography–computed tomography maximum intensity projection image shows a large hypermetabolic lesion in the sternal region. (b) Transaxial fused image shows a lytic lesion with soft tissue component in the sternal manubrium (maximum standardized uptake value of 18.3). (c) Sagittal fused image shows extension of sternal lesion into the superior mediastinum, abutting junction of the ascending, and arch of aorta with indistinct fat planes and hypermetabolic lytic lesion in posterior body of T4 and T5 vertebrae with intraspinal extension
