PET/CT scans provide significantly more information than CT scans, and are far more reliable when diagnosing cancer. The reality is that you cannot rely on a CT scan (or ultrasound, MRI, or blood test) to tell you if you have cancer. It is only with a PET/CT scan that you will know for sure.
PET/CT, which is a combination of positron emission tomography (PET) with computerized tomography (CT), is a powerful, essential tool for cancer detection and diagnosis.
Yes! Numerous studies have shown that PET-CT scans are more reliable than CT scans for cancer diagnosis. At Cancer Treatment Options and Management, we frequently see cases where cancer patients have gotten a false negative or false positive from a CT scan before getting an accurate diagnosis from a PET/CT.
And so, even after you get a CT scan, you still won’t know for sure if you have cancer , nor how aggressive it is, nor exactly where it is in your body.. Some consequences of an incorrect, or incomplete, cancer diagnosis include:
What's the solution? Getting a PET/CT scan from the start ensures that you will immediately know if you have cancer – and, if so, exactly where it is and how aggressive it is. So you can move on to getting the right treatment as soon as possible.
While a PET/CT is an excellent imaging tool, it alone is not enough to give you an accurate diagnosis. For an accurate diagnosis, you also need to get comprehensive genetic testing done, and have the results analyzed by a genomics specialist (not a regular oncologist).
That’s why our medical team at Cancer Treatment Options and Management will help you get the most advanced diagnostic tools (like PET/CT) and genetic testing (like tumor DNA sequencing and liquid biopsy) as fast as possible. And, most importantly, we’ll ensure the results of these tests are properly analyzed and put into immediate action for you.
In other words, we’ll ensure you get the right testing done immediately – and then we’ll analyze the results and get you started on the right treatment ASAP.
Speed and accuracy are the two most important factors in a successful treatment outcome.

"I was impressed with the research and knowledge that the medical team from CTOAM has. They've explained everything along the way; I’ve come to trust them implicitly. They always gives me hope, which is a huge benefit. I’d recommend for anyone diagnosed with cancer to give CTOAM a call and use this service. A doctor’s just a doctor – meaning, they don’t have time to do the research that Cancer Treatment Options and Management does, plus they have to stick with the protocols of standard care." – Damian, CTOAM patient & colon cancer survivor
