Accurate tumor staging requires that all sites of disease be identified. Imaging studies using CT, MA, or sonography may identify abnormal anatomic sites, but these studies may be unable to distinguish between different causes of an abnormality. For example, enlarged lymph nodes may represent metastases or inflammation. Lymph nodes that are not enlarged still may harbor micrometastases, however, and in this circumstance no abnormality will be detected by anatomic imaging studies. Tumor-seeking… CONTINUE READING
