Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?

Combination Scan Works Better

Researchers have found that a combination computerized tomography-positron emission tomography (CT-PET) scan is more beneficial to mesothelioma patients than a normal CT or MRI scan.

In an evaluation of the scan results of 35 patients, researchers found that CT scans showed 4 of them in advanced stage mesothelioma. However, the CT-PET scan showed 16 of those same patients in advanced stages.

This information is useful for patients who are considering surgery as it can help with benefit analysis. The surgery is very dangerous and most patients in advanced stages do not benefit from it.
