H1N1 Vaccination & FDG PET

Recent article-  Clinical Nuclear Medicine: October 2011 - Volume 36 - Issue 10 - pp 848-853- has concluded "H1N1 vaccination can cause false-positive FDG PET/CT findings, when administered less than 14 days before the test, with the highest probability if the vaccination was administered less than 8 days ago. Increased FDG activity in the ipsilateral deltoid muscle is a key finding for accurate interpretation of increased FDG activity in axillary lymph nodes."
