Caption: Secondary liver cancer. Combined cross-sectional computed tomography (CT) and positron emission tomography (PET) scans of several secondary tumours (red/pink) in the liver of a patient with breast cancer. These tumours have developed because the cancer has metastasised (spread) from the primary site in the breast. The pale blue area at lower centre is the spinal column. The PET scan used here is 2-18F-fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose (FDG) positron emission tomography. The prognosis is poor. Treatment is with chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
