Title: Special protocol for "gallbladder cancer"?
Post by: CharPatton on August 01, 2019, 02:53:56 pm
Do you do just a regular CT in portal venous phase, or do you add a 15' delay like one would for cholangiocarcinoma scans?

Thanks!!!

if I was staging GB cancer I would do dual phase to try and define liver involvement by direct extension. If only one phase I would wait 70 sec
