Today I was luckey enough to have a PET SCAN. A positron emmission tomogrophy, PET, uses radiation to show activity within the body on a cellular level. A nucular tracer is put into the body to reveal how tissues and organs are functioning. Combine the PET SCAN with an MRI and CT scan and it gives the Doctor a multidimensionl look at the workings of the body.
Several months ago I underwent Radiation to my L-1 vertebrae. The PET scan will reveal if the radiation treatments worked. I pray they did. PEACE
