SUV means

If you wanted to know what SUV blood pool was, I found this on google.

SUV stands for standard uptake value. In general any lesion seen on the scan with SUV of more than 3 indicates metabolic acidosis activity, that is, it is not scar tissue. It maybe hyper metabolic due to infections, or inflammation or cancer. Higher number means more metabolic acidosis

I will keep you posted, my appointment with Dr. Icaza is Thursday, 12th at 4pm.
