CT, PET or MRI scans - Which give "True Picture" of Cancer Health?

Scans - Which Ones Give "True Picture" of Cancer Health?

PET scan shows best if you still have cancer

A PET scan, not a CT or MRI scan, shows the “true Picture”of whether your cancer cells have been dealt with

-   On CT and MRI scans, dead or necrotic cancer cells show up just the same as live cancer cells.  This can therefore give a false diagnosis

-   PET scans differentiate between live and dead cancer cells

The body eventually breaks down and eliminates dead cancer cells

CT scans estimated to cause 1.5 - 2% of cancer cases in U.S.

   A 2010 article at mercola.com reports: “According to a 2009 study in the Archives of Internal Medicine, CT scans alone will cause nearly 30,000 unnecessary cancer cases [every year] (about 2 percent of cancer cases), which will lead to about 14,500 deaths. But wait, there's more bad news. While 30,000 cancer cases is a large number, a New England Journal of Medicine study from 2007 estimated that overuse of diagnostic CT scans may cause up to 3 million excess cancers over the next 20 to 30 years.
