Anyone get a false positive on Pet/CT scan? Pet scan shows something...CT shows nothing. Oncologist confused as to what it is, says it is so small.

Hi Neen,

What is the size that showed up on the PET scan?  What was the PET scan SUV?

Here's a link that discusses SUV values and their meaning:



DX IDC TNBC 6/09 age 49, Stage 1,Grade 3, 1.5cm,0/5Nodes,KI-67 48%,BRCA-,6/09bi-mx, recon, T/C X4(9/09)
