PET Scans We're Making a Difference.

Detecting Mesothelioma Through PET Scans

Effective Advocacy for Mesothelioma Patients at BCH

If you or a loved one was diagnosed with mesothelioma after receiving a positron emission tomography scan, or PET scan, it is important to speak with an attorney about your case. You should not have to suffer the effects of an unsafe work environment alone. Our mesothelioma attorneys at BCH are here to hold employers accountable for worker injuries and illnesses, including asbestos-induced mesothelioma.

PET Scans & Mesothelioma Imaging

In the early 1960s, PET scans were used in detecting cancerous growths on the pleura—the lining of the lungs. PET scans can also show detailed images of developing cancer on the lymph nodes. PET scans involve a mild radioactive cancer tracer. This substance is injected into the patient’s bloodstream before the imaging process takes place. The three-dimensional images are very effective in displaying affected areas of the tissue.

PET scans are most effective at staging the development of the cancer and determining how effective treatment will be. This form of imaging can be used to determine if chemotherapy or other forms of treatment are working. Images produced will show metastasizing or malignant mesothelioma tumors.

  • What Are the Treatment Options for Mesothelioma Cancer?
    • Radiation
    • Chemotherapy
    • Surgery
    • Multimodal therapy; utilizing several treatments in a tailored combination

There are also alternative treatments available. Of course, for all forms of treatment, the results will be best if the cancer is detected at an early stage. It is important to talk to your doctor about any history of asbestos exposure, as mesothelioma can be mistaken for other forms of cancer as well as certain respiratory diseases.
