Determination of tumor, metastasis and stage with only one examination.

A 45-year-old female patient in a good general health state came to us because she palpated enlarged lymph nodes in her armpit. With the performed whole body PET-CT we diagnosed the patient with breast cancer. From the axillary lymph nodes it turned out that they are malignant (metastatic) and unfortunately we also found bone metastases on her spinal cord (afterwards it was revealed that this was the cause of spinal pain that has been present for years). With the PET-CT examination we not only provided a quick diagnosis, but we gave the disease stage to the oncologist who could initiate the therapy as soon as possible (and could spare the thoracic, abdominal CT and bone scintigraphy examinations that have long waiting period).
