    Abstract. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the feasibility of 2-[fluorine-18]fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose (FDG) and positron emission tomography (PET) for rapid detection of human infections. Eleven patients who were known or suspected to be harboring various infections were studied with...
