PET scan MRI scan

I have got my MRI scan after treatment end of Jan but from reading here some of you had also PET scan. I wasn’t offered one ?
I finished chemo, radiotherapy and brachytherapy in September 2023. Do I need to ask for PET scan ? Thanks

Hello @Dona,

I think it just depends on where you are and what your hospital/oncologist does.
A lot of people just have an MRI post treatment, they do not always want to do PETs as you have already had a lot of radiation so don’t want to give you more!
But saying that I’m in Australia and they just do a PET scan here post treatment, then no other scans ever unless I have symptoms! :frowning_with_open_mouth:
Good luck with your scan :pray:t2:
Hope I could help answer you question.

No worries :blush:
I know everywhere is so different!
I’m sure they see any issues on MRI and if there were any issues they’d probably do further scans/tests ect.
Hope it all goes well xx
