Figure 1

Radiographic findings of the blastomatoid pulmonary carcinosarcoma. Preoperative computed tomography (CT) detected a sharply marginated tumour in the upper right hemithorax of up to 12.9 cm size (A, coronal view). The tumour extended to the right hilus, pleura, and the spinal column. Positron emission tomography with integrated computed tomography (FDG-PET/CT, Philips Gemini, PET-acquisition 90 minutes after intravenous injection of 198 megabecquerel 2-(18F)-fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose) revealed marked FDG-glucose uptake in the pulmonary mass, especially median, lateral and caudal, with a maximum standardized uptake value (SUVmax) of 14.1 (B, fusion PET/CT, coronal view).
