Good information on PET scans - how they must be carefully interpreted as certain infection can mimic a response similar to cancer cells.

Warning: Article is technical, geared to radiology personnel.

P.S. FDG is the most common radiopharmaceutical (I think) used in both PET can PET/CT scans

Thanks for the info, we have one coming up in about a month and Jim has an infection right now - getting better - but it might matter on the test.

If your puppy were black, it would look just like one of mine. He is a rascal, too, but very loving. He's got short hair for summer, though, to cut down on seeds and ticks. Margaret
