What is more reliable - Biopsy or PET Scan?



  • Can a biopsy and pet scan report differ....Which is more authentic and realible?



  • Hi Kushaal, PET scan and Biopsy are two different things. A biopsy gives you true nature of tissue whether it is malignant and helps us subtype the cancer if present. PET scan, on the other hand, is an imaging modality that identifies and highlights areas in the body with high metabolic activity which can be due to cancer or inflammation and doesn't confirm any disease but helps to stage cancer which has been confirmed by Biopsy.
