The presentation will present the implementation and indication of conventional nuclear medicine techniques that have traditionally been used when evaluating infectious or inflammatory conditions. Newer techniques for evaluating fever of unknown (FUO) with emphasis on FDG PET will be described. The role of FDG in specific infectious scenarios will be discussed including spondylodiscitis, endocarditis, pocket infections and various inflammatory conditions such as Crohn’s disease and vasculitis will be presented. A final brief comment on potential future directions with FDG PET in inflammatory/infectious conditions will also be included.
