PET SCAN

    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
