Have both scan results.  Nuclear whole body with SPECT showed multiple foci in 8th rib , cortical thickening in 7th rib, conclusion: Highly suspicious of bone metastasis on right chest cage.    What next ?  Well I am seeing the Thoracic Surgeon in London next week and may have PET and/or biopsy . MRI result showed nothing at all!  My daily pain which I have had for 12 months is in the region of the 7 and 8th ribs.  Anyone else have discordant scans before diagnosis of what type of tumour they have?
