Is a PET scan always accurate?
PET scan is a highly sensitive imaging modality and can detect small tumors with high accuracy, particularly those that are highly metabolic. However, it’s important to note that it’s not always 100% accurate, as a PET scan may not detect a small tumor if it’s located in an area with high background activity or if the tumor doesn’t take up the radiotracer. Additionally, false-positive results can occur due to the uptake of radiotracer in benign conditions like inflammation or infection. Therefore, it is important to interpret the results of a PET scan in the context of the patient’s clinical history and other imaging modalities, such as CT or MRI, to ensure the most accurate diagnosis.
