A Very Scary PET/CT Scan

Here is an axial PET/CT fusion sequence performed on a 36 year old woman with a history of melanoma. Does anyone see anything interesting?

I had known this patient was to be scanned, and she had been extensively counselled. I didn't realize, however, that she was on schedule for this particular day. Imagine my loss of intestinal control when I started scrolling through this study.

While I don't know for certain, this has to be one of the only, if not THE only, PET/CT scans depicting a twin gestation in the literature.
