  2. 2. Visit us at: www.indiacarez.com A patient's symptoms, physical exam, and results of imaging tests, and blood tests may suggest that bone cancer is present. But in most cases, doctors must confirm this suspicion by examining a tissue or cell sample under a microscope (known as a biopsy). Other diseases, such as bone infections, can cause symptoms and imaging results that could be confused with bone cancer. Accurate diagnosis of a bone tumor often depends on combining information about its location (what bone is affected and even which part of the bone is involved), appearance on xrays, and appearance under a microscope. Since a single bone metastasis can have the same sign and symptoms as a primary bone tumor, many doctors require a biopsy to diagnose a patient's first bone metastasis. After that, additional bone metastases can usually be diagnosed based on x-rays and other imaging tests.

  3. 3. Visit us at: www.indiacarez.com Imaging Tests to Detect Bone Cancer Imaging tests you undergo depends on your situation. Your doctor may recommend one or more imaging tests to evaluate the area of concern, including:  Bone scan  Computerized tomography (CT)  Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)  Positron emission tomography (PET)  X-ray Please scan and email your medical reports to us at hospitalindia@gmail.com or hospitalindia@yahoo.com and we shall get you a Free, No Obligation Opinion from India's leading Specialist Doctors
  4. 4. Visit us at: www.indiacarez.com Bone Scan: This procedure helps show if a cancer has spread to other bones. It can find metastases earlier than regular x-rays. Bone scans also can show how much damage the primary cancer has caused in the bone. For this test, the patient receives an injection of radioactive material called technetium diphosphonate. The amount of radioactivity used is very low and causes no long-term effects. This substance is attracted to diseased bone cells throughout the entire skeleton. Areas of diseased bone will be seen on the bone scan image as dense, gray to black areas, called "hot spots." These areas may suggest metastatic cancer is present, but arthritis, infection, or other bone diseases can also cause a similar pattern.

  5. 5. Visit us at: www.indiacarez.com Computerized tomography (CT) Scan: CT scan (or CAT scan) stands for Computerised (Axial) Tomography scan. This means a scan that takes a series of X-rays and uses a computer to put them together. The scan is painless. The CT machine takes pictures of your body from different angles and gives a series of cross sections (slices) through the part of the body being scanned. A very detailed picture of the inside of the body can be built up in this way. Together these cross sections give a very accurate picture of where a tumour is and how big it is. They also show how close the area that needs to be treated or operated on is to major body organs.

  6. 6. Visit us at: www.indiacarez.com Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) Scan: MRI scans use radio waves and strong magnets instead of x-rays. The energy from the radio waves is absorbed and then released in a pattern formed by the type of tissue and by certain diseases. A computer translates the pattern of radio waves given off by the tissues into a very detailed image of parts of the body. Sometimes a contrast material called gadolinium is injected into your veins to better see the tumor. MRI scans are often the best test for outlining a bone tumor. They are also particularly helpful for looking at the brain and spinal cord. MRI scans are a little more uncomfortable than CT scans. First, they take longer -- often up to an hour. Also, you have to be placed inside a tube, which is confining and can upset people with claustrophobia (fear of enclosed spaces). The machine also makes a thumping noise that you may find disturbing. Some places provide headphones with music to block this out.

  7. 7. Visit us at: www.indiacarez.com Positron emission tomography (PET) Scan: PET scans use glucose (a form of sugar) that contains a radioactive atom. A special camera can detect the radioactivity. Cancer cells absorb a lot of the radioactive sugar because of their high rate of metabolism. PET is useful to look for cancer throughout your body. PET scans can be more helpful than several different x-rays because it scans the whole body. It can sometimes help tell if a tumor is cancerous or benign. It is being combined with CT scans to better pinpoint some kinds of cancer.

  8. 8. Visit us at: www.indiacarez.com X-ray : Most bone cancers show up on x-rays of the bone. The bone at the site of the cancer may appear "ragged" instead of solid. The cancer can also appear as a hole in the bone. Sometimes doctors can see a tumor around the defect in the bone that might extend into nearby tissues (such as muscle or fat). The radiologist (doctor who specializes in reading x-rays) can often tell if a tumor is malignant by the way it appears on the x-ray, but only a biopsy can absolutely determine that. A chest x-ray is often done to see if bone cancer has spread to the lungs.

  9. 9. Visit us at: www.indiacarez.com Biopsy Tests to Detect Bone Cancer : A Sample of bone tissue is extracted and examined for cancer cells. This is the most reliable way to diagnose bone cancer. A core needle biopsy involves inserting a long, thin needle into the bone and removing a sample, while an open biopsy involves making an incision in the target bone area and surgically removing a sample of tissue. Blood Tests to Detect Bone Cancer : To Determine the level of an enzyme called alkaline phosphatase. A large amount of this enzyme is present in the blood when the cells that form bone tissue are very active—when children are growing, when a broken bone is mending, or when a disease or tumor causes production of abnormal bone tissue. Because high levels of alkaline phosphatase are normal in growing children and adolescents.
