We incidentally identified gallbladder activity on 18F sodium fluoride (NaF) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) bone images in five patients. Variable degree of bowel activity is usually seen on NaF PET/CT images, and its mechanism is unknown. Gallbladder activity in our cases may indicate that hepatobiliary excretion of the 18F NaF is the reason for bowel activity on NaF PET/CT images. However, excretion of radiotracer through bowel may also contribute to the bowel activity.
