The authors describe various patterns of F-18 fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) accumulation in the diaphragm and crura. They present 6 patients in whom incidental diaphragmatic and crural uptake of FDG was observed during positron emission tomography (PET). Hyperventilation is thought to be the potential underlying mechanism of this condition.
