Topic: CT/PET Scan - Necessary?
My Mom was diagnosed with inoperable CC - no chemo or radiation either. She was told that the cancer had spread to her liver, pancreas and gallbladder and was given months to live. Today, she received a call from the hospital to schedule an appointment for a CT /PET Scan for mid-March. What purpose would this serve at this point? Is it common to have such a scan when she was told that there isn't anything they could do for her other than make her comfortable and is already seeing a Palliative Care Specialist?
