A 78-year-old woman with lung cancer underwent an F-18 fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (FDG PET/CT). Focal FDG uptake was noted in the stomach which was associated with an area of thickening and ulceration on the CT scan. Endoscopy and biopsy demonstrated a benign gastric ulcer.
