hollyanne Posted October 6, 2005 Share Posted October 6, 2005 Hi - My mom has had a terrible time with pain and has been unable to get started on chemo...yet they recently put her on steroids, and she is doing better, thankfully. Given that she has new pain in her hip which is terrible..they are going to do a full bone scan tomorrow. If it is a met tumor, they will radiate that as well. My question is this...what is the differnce between a CT scan, bone scan and MRI -- what shows what. For example, if there were mets to the brain or skull, would those show up in a "bone scan?" If something is in the adrenal gland near the kidney -- would that show up in a bone scan or a CT scan or what. Please help!!! I feel so ignorant. Thanks very much!
