Does this mean “stable” or “no cancer activity.”.
Previously seen focal FDG uptake in the caudate lobe is no longer visualized.
Extensive osseous metastases are again noted with no change in CT appearance but with interval resolution of FDG uptake involving all of the previously described lesions. There are no new lesions.
History of metastaic breast cancer with interval resolution of metabolic activity seen in previously described FDG avid caudate lesion or extensive FDG avid osseous metastases. No new metastases.
Yes, that is a good way to describe the results…there does not appear to be any cancer activity in the sites noted.
Congratulations on such a great result!
