The Mesothelioma Lawsuit Attorneys of Williams Hart Discuss Potential New Mesothelioma Diagnosis Procedure

Recent research published in the journal Oncology Reports suggests that a nuclear medicine imaging technique may be able to improve the accuracy of doctors’ prognoses for patients with Mesothelioma. The technique, known as positron emission tomography (PET) uses the molecule fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) to trace metabolic processes as they occur. When combined with CT scans and conducted in a two-phase interval, this technique can significantly improve a medical professional’s knowledge of the disease’s progression and ability to accurately assess a patient’s prognosis.

This enhanced accuracy is vital to the well-being and sense of security of those affected by mesothelioma. Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer that affects the protective linings of many of the body’s internal organs. As with other forms of cancer, understanding the progression of the disease is crucial to determining the best course of treatment. Furthermore, the peace of mind which can be achieved through a clearer understanding of one’s own condition may prove invaluable to patients affected by mesothelioma.

Mesothelioma is caused by exposure to asbestos, a naturally occurring mineral which became popular for use in building insulation in the 19th and 20th centuries. While the use of asbestos was generally banned in the 1980s, many older buildings may still contain significant amounts of this harmful material, and those exposed to asbestos are at risk of developing a number of harmful medical conditions. The mesothelioma lawsuit attorneys of Williams Hart are prepared to help all those who have been affected by this unfortunate condition pursue compensation for their pain and suffering.
