Conclusion: This pictorial review illustrates the physiological and normal variations in FDG uptake and will help in increasing the diagnostic accuracy of PET CT reports and thereby reducing the number of unnecessary follow-up studies/procedures. Research Support: Brain: greater uptake in the cerebral cortex, basal ganglia and thalami (grey matter), Variable uptake in the cord at C6-T1 and T12-L2 Head and Neck: wide spectrum of uptake pattern involving vocal cords, tonsils, waldeyer ring, parotid and submandibular glands. Thyroid: Focal and diffuse uptake patterns. Thymus: normal uptake in children, rebound thymic uptake B...

Doctors have been adding a new tool to the arsenal of how they restore the sex lives of menopausal and post-menopausal women: the humble vibrator.

The information that doctors receive has come from ongoing studies that seemed to offer over time radically conflicting results.
