Background Abnormal activity of 18F-FDG PET/CT is a major Duke criterion in the diagnostic work-up of infective prosthetic valve endocarditis (IE). We hypothesized that quantitative lesion assessment by 18F-FDG PET/CT-derived standard maximum uptake ratio (SURmax), metabolic volume (MV), and total lesion glycolysis (TLG) might be useful in distinct subgroups of IE patients (e.g. IE-related ...
