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

PET, CT or MRI 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, aNew England Journal of Medicine study from 2007 estimated that overuse of diagnostic CT scans may cause up to3 million excess cancers over the next 20 to 30 years.
