My dad is almost finish with his 12 cycles 5FU treatments. He is soon to be scheduled for a scan. Normally, a CAT scan with contrast is done. However, he has chronic kidney disease. The doctor's reason for CAT scan is because he and other oncologists are train to read CAT scan. He claims MRI or PET is too hard to read because overload information. Is it more harder to read/detect cancer using MRI, PET scan vs CAT scan? Or should get second opinion?

The pet scan to my knowledge i thought was the best because any tumors actually light up. This is my understanding but im not a doctor so it’s possible im wrong a little here as well.
