Urinary Tract Cancers
Laser to Remove Kidney Cancer
I would like to know the percentage of success with laser cancer removal in the kidneys. Would a pet scan tell us if the cancer has spread to other organs?
The laser is current not used for the removal of kidney cancer. The PET/CT is not much better than a good body CT.
