Guest bean_si (Not Active) Posted May 6, 2004 Share Posted May 6, 2004 I notice many posts mention "hot spots". What does this mean? Is this a phrase the doctors use or is it used in the reports? On my bone scan it says "There is a single mild increase uptake seen at the costochondral juntion of what appears to be approximately the 6th left rib. The appearance is more in keeping of traumatic injury and not metastic disease." Is that what is known as a hot spot? I'm still waiting for my onc's office to call with results of this bone scan which I picked up at hospital. I called them to see if he wanted to see me sooner than next appt. in June and was told no. Off now to rad onc and primary doctors appts. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
