Tatoveringsassocieret sarkoidose fra et nuklearmedicinsk perspektiv

Translated title of the contribution: Tattoo-associated sarcoidosis from a nuclear medicine perspective

Abstract

Tattoo-associated sarcoidosis is characterized by granulomas in tattoos with or without the involvement of other organ systems such as the lungs and eyes. 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (18F-FDG PET is a nuclear medicine imaging study that can differentiate between metabolically over-active areas and normal tissue. Thus, this review finds that 18F-FDG-PET/CT imaging can be used to image inflammatory activity in tattoos and in case of papulonodular tattoo reaction be used to investigate possible systemic sarcoidosis.
