Figure 12: FDG-PET images (A) in a patient with mild/grade 1 fracture in L1 vertebra do not show any significant radiotracer uptake suggestive of osteoporotic fracture. FDG-PET images in a patient with pathological fractures (B) show multiple areas of radiotracer uptake in sacrum and D10 vertebrae (arrows). L3 vertebra is sclerotic but without any uptake, likely osteoporotic fracture
