Adam-Carole's last ct scan was 10/21/09. The report stated that 'no focal lesion in the liver is appreciated,' which we assumed meant there were no liver tumors visible/detectable at that time, which meant they either died or shrunk to a size where they were virtually undetectable. Her last pet scan was 11/24/09, and the doctor's findings at that time indicated 'there are no hypermetabolic foci to suggest the presence of residual/recurrent disease at this time,' which we assumed meant there were no active cancer cells detectable, anywhere, at that time. Obviously, that was our doc's conclusion at the time, and although I'm not good at reading these reports, that's what the summaries from the reports would seem to confirm. Now if that only continues with the next scans. Hope this is helpful.
