Figure 1: (a) Maximum intensity projection image - increased fluorodeoxyglucose avidity in the midline of the neck. (b) Fused axial image - markedly increased metabolic activity in left-sided mass lesion (large single arrow). Another large solid-cystic mass lesion arising from the right lobe of the thyroid gland with mildly increased fluorodeoxyglucose uptake (small double arrow). (c) Axial computed tomography scan of the neck – left-sided mass lesion is not separable from the isthmus of the thyroid, thyroid cartilage, and obstructing the supraglottic larynx. (d) Small soft-tissue parenchymal nodules in the lingular segment of the left lung with minimally increased metabolic activity
