Figure 4: A 89-year-old patient presented with biopsy proven anal malignant melanoma. PET/CT scan was for restaging in the view of growth detected on per rectal examination. MIP image (a) shows focal increased tracer uptake in the pelvis, liver, right lung, and dorsal vertebra. Fused transaxial FDG PET/CT images show anorectal soft tissue mass (short arrow) and left inguinal node (long arrow) (b); pararectal nodule (c); liver metastases (d), metastatic dorsal vertebral lesion (e); and lung nodules (f). The patient was considered for palliative chemotherapy. FDG: Fluorodeoxyglucose; PET/CT: Positron emission tomography/computed tomography; MIP: Maximum Intensity Projection
