For Cancer Treatment Monitoring

PET/CT Scans for Cancer Recurrence Detection

After you have had treatment for cancer, a follow-up CT or MRI scan may show that there are still some signs of the cancer left. But this may not be active cancer – it could be scar tissue left over from cancer killed off by your treatment. So your treatment team won’t have accurate information to know whether you actually need to continue treatment. This means you might continue harmful treatment (and thinking you still have cancer) for absolutely no reason.

PET/CT scan

On the other hand, getting a follow-up PET/CT scan during and after treatment can benefit cancer patients greatly.

  • A PET/CT scan will show:
    • Whether any remaining tissue is active cancer or not
    • Whether or not tumour(s) have grown or decreased in size
    • To what degree the tumour(s) have grown or decreased in size

A PET/CT scan will ensure that you do not continue treatment unnecessarily (or worry about having cancer). You will know, usually within just a few weeks, how well your body is responding to treatment.
