The investigators will perform radionuclide PET scans in subjects with infectious diseases to assess whether radio-labeled PABA (11C-PABA) is effective for infection imaging.
Tomographic imaging can be used to evaluate disease processes deep within the body, noninvasively and relatively rapidly. The goal is to see if this imaging technique can help differentiate infections from non-infectious processes and also provide information on the causative bacterial class.
