Can PET scan detect small tumors?

The question remains: can PET scans detect small tumors?

The short answer is yes, in most cases. While PET scans aren’t as detailed as traditional x-ray or CT imaging, they’re still effective at detecting small tumors as long as the cancer cells take up the radioactive tracer material (also known as a radiotracer). The size of a tumor that can be detected on a PET scan will depend on several factors, including its location, size, metabolic activity, and whether there is any nearby tissue with similar levels of radiotracer uptake.
