Since its introduction into clinical practice, 2-deoxy-2-[18F]flu-D-glucose (FDG) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) has become firmly established in the field of oncological imaging, with a growing body of evidence demonstrating its use in infectious and inflammatory vascular pathologies. This pictorial review illustrates the utility of FDG PET/CT as a diagnostic tool in the investigation of vascular disease and highlights some of the more common incidental vascular findings that PET reporters may encounter on standard oncology FDG PET/CTs, including atherosclerosis, large vessel vasculitis, complications of vascular grafts, infectious aortitis and acute aortic syndromes.
