Can anyone tell me exactly what this means?
I had a PET scan for my Oncologist and this is what the results came back with. I have a pacemaker and I’m pacemaker dependent.
1. Mild hypermetabolic uptake is noted about the pacemaker and along the leads, likely inflammatory in etiology. Recommend correlation for infection.
2. Interval postoperative changes of right hemicolectomy with resolution of previously seen hypermetabolic focus within the ascending colon. No hypermetabolic lymph nodes or masses to suggest metastatic disease.
