Distribution of FDG

Vickilg Member Posts: 281
I just noticed a sentence at the bottom of my PetScan result and was wondering if it means anything.

"The rest of the exam demonstrated physiologic distribution of the FDG."

Does anyone know? It doesn't say uptake or anything else, just that one sentence.

    As best as I can tell...physiologic in medical terms means "Characteristic of normal, healthy functioning" and the FDG is the tracer used in the PET.

    If I am right, then that is good news.
