This pictorial essay depicts normal appearances, complications and residual or recurrent disease on fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (FDG PET/CT) studies in the postsurgical and postprocedural setting, other than head and neck malignancy. Reading and reporting FDG PET/CT in this scenario is daunting due to the multiple confounding false positives seen during this period. This article which is the second part in this series will familiarize the readers with the normal appearance and pitfalls seen in FDG PET/CT studies in thoracic and abdominopelvic malignancies during the postoperative and postprocedural period so as to avoid misinterpretations.
