Why is a PET/CT scan for cancer important?

Why Does CTOAM Promote PET/CT for Cancer?
Just for the sake of transparency – and in case you were wondering – CTOAM gets zero $ from PET/CT scans. We promote them simply because they’re the most accurate, accessible, and affordable imaging test available right now. (PET/MRIs are even more detailed, but are much harder to access and far more costly.)
The great thing about PET/CT is that, sometimes, if you just ask your doctor for one, they’ll agree to give it to you. But they usually won’t offer…so you need to advocate. ❤️And, if you’d ever like my team’s support for your cancer care advocacy, just book a free phone call with me to find out how we can help you.
