no SCANdal here - I am clean (updated)

Well... the PET scan results are out ... This was the second PET after treatment got over ... An unassuming pre-printed report says that things are fine



Am posting some of the PET Scan pictures for the curious ones who have never seen such images


Here's the latest update from my Hematologist Dr Auro Viswabandya

I had a loook at PET scan and it appears absolutely fine.
Your blood reports are normal and no intervention is required at present.
You can definitely get prepared for half marathon run in November 2008 ! Absolutely no problem.
For some people, the weakness / tiredness remains for a longer time post chemo and radiotherapy. Try to ignore that and get back to your normal schedule. Should be alright.
It will be better to have a repeat PET after 6 months and if everything is fine, then the next PET can be after 1 year.

As a frivolous aside, your 2 hip bones in the photo on the lower left look like tangdi kabab! (or puraane zamaane ke smoking pipes, or 2 pistols)

Was patient consent taken before posting the scan reports and images? otherwise this is a simple violation of patient privacy as his personal details are clearly evident in the report and images.

Alam said...

Yes Vipin the patient consent was taken. Infact the patient himself posted the blog..

Cheers
Alam
