FDG-PETFDG-PET - Positron emission tomography with radiotracer F-fluorodeoxyglucose - Positron emission tomography (PET) is a nuclear medicine procedure based on the measurement of positron emission from radiolabelled tracer molecules. These radiotracers allow biologic processes to be measured and whole body images to be obtained which demonstrates sites of radiotracer accumulation.
FN | FPFN - false negative; FP - false positive - In medical testing, and more generally in binary classification, a false positive is an error in data reporting in which a test result improperly indicates presence of a condition, such as a disease (the result is positive), when in reality it is not, while a false negative is an error in which a test result improperly indicates no presence condition (the result is negative), when in reality it is present.
FES | NMESFunctional electrical stimulation (FES) is a technique that uses electrical currents to activate nerves innervating extremities affected by paralysis resulting from spinal cord injury (SCI), head injury, stroke and other neurological disorders. FES is primarily used to restore function in people with disabilities. It is sometimes referred to as neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES).
FDGFDG - Fluorine-18-deoxyglucose - Fludeoxyglucose (18F) (INN), or fludeoxyglucose F 18 (USAN and USP), also commonly called fluorodeoxyglucose and abbreviated [<sup>18</sup>F]FDG, <sup>18</sup>F-FDG or FDG, is a radiopharmaceutical used in the medical imaging modality positron emission tomography (PET).
FMFM - Frequency modulation - FM is a common form of radio transmission. FM is one of several wireless technologies that transmit sounds directly to a hard of hearing person for optimal clarity and better understanding.
