Figure 15: Panels (a-e): 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography for detection of complications of infective endocarditis. Transesophageal echocardiography imaging of mobile vegetation with leaflet prolapse and severe regurgitation (a and b). On 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography imaging, there was an 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose signal from the mitral bioprosthesis (c and d, white arrow) and evidence of a splenic abscess (c and e, red arrow)[9]
