Karen_L Posted January 4, 2022 Share Posted January 4, 2022 Today's MRI showed: "A new subcentimeter enhancing lesion is identified in the subcortical paramedian right frontal lobe, moderately suspicious for metastasis. The possibility of an isolated subacute lacunar infarct is also considered, given diffusion restriction associated with the lesion. Short-term MRI follow-up is recommended in 4-6 weeks." Today's PET: "Hypermetabolic lesion in right perihilar region in the region of posttreatment changes. It is less conspicuous compared to prior PET from 2/26/2021 but persists. Multiple small right lower lobe pulmonary nodules are present but are distorted by motion.... There is a focal area of high metabolic activity in right perihilar region. SUV max in this region is 12.2. Previously, SUV max in this region was 20.4. Area of high metabolic activity is smaller compared to prior exam. Mildly increased metabolic activity, SUV max 3.9, corresponding to posttreatment changes in the posterior aspect of right lung. Background mediastinal blood pool activity: 2.6." I see the oncologist tomorrow, the oncology radiologist Thursday; tumor board next Monday. Three questions: Have any of you attended your tumor board discussion? I've been told we can do this. Would you want to? Could any of you send me to some research about the brain results? (The PET holds no surprises.) Any thoughts about questions or comments *you* would bring to the upcoming appointments? Thanks. Karen Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
