Figure 3

Representative figures indicating the SUV uptake at the carotid artery in NWL and NWO subjects. Coronal image of 18 F-FDG-PET/CT around the carotid artery is presented as an unenhanced CT image, a fusion image of CT and PET, and a maximum intensity projection (MIP) image, from the upper panel to the lower panel. The red arrow indicates the carotid artery. 18 F-FDG-PET/CT, 18 F-fludeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography; SUV, standardized uptake value; NWL, normal weight lean; NWO, normal weight obesity.
