06/25/2010 - Here are the results of Lisa's latest set of scans.

Mike here:
Lisa endured three separate scan sessions this week. 1 CT scan and 2 separate sessions of MIBG scans consisting of several scans each. Additionally she had a bone marrow biopsy. At this time it is unclear to me just by reading the text below, whether or not there is any discernible disease. I'm thinking there is, but that in and of itself is not bad news. She's clearly handling the treatments well and the disease is not only under control but it is diminishing. Seeing traces of the disease allows us to continue to "manage" it and treat it. We are very happy with the results!

Report -
MIBG: Striking interval response to treatment; previously identified focal area of increased radiotracer uptake involving the left occipital bone is now faintly visualized. No new suspicious areas of radiotracer uptake are identified to suggest disease progression scintigraphically.

CT Scan chest, abdomen, and pelvis: No evidence of disease progression with interval decrease in size of multiple retroperitoneal and pelvic lymph nodes as outlined above. Stable appearance of the multiple areas of lucency and sclerosis involving the spine, sacrum and bilateral iliac bones, which could relate to diffuse osseous metastatic disease. Suggest correlation with MIBG study to determine activity of lesions.

**UPDATE** 7:45 PM
Bone Biopsy is clear! Yea!
