Hello I had a recent PET scan, which showed slightly increased intensity in a spot that's been lighting up in my chest for a few months (but only 2.7), plus a new spot in my hip at 4.4 SUV. The report suggests MRI with contrast to further evaluate the area; my doctor ordered a CT scan, though. I am a little confused on which is more appropriate and in what situations. I would like to see a specialist soon, but am very far away from any and also want to get the ball rolling on these scans. I'm currently stage 3A... hoping it stays that way... any input is appreciated, there is so much information to learn and things to consider, it's very overwhelming. Thank you.
