My mom had her 2nd round of chemo yesterday, did great. Spoke to the Onc. dr beforehand and he said after the 3rd treatment she will get a CT scan of chest to "restage". But said he wants to give her an MRI of her low back/hips to see about the bone mets. My question is does an MRI of the bone show more than a Bone scan or PET scan? She had both, and they confirmed mets in a "few small areas" of her spine. He made it sound like he wants the MRI now, and the CT after the 3rd treatment. I asked and they said it depends on how the hospital schedules it. I am kind of concerned why now he is in a hurry to do bone images. She isn't having any pain or anything. Is this standard for bone mets? Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
