Hello all, in my researching my condition I found that UCLA and Johns Hopkins have something called a Sestamibi SPECT scan which can tell with greater accuracy if a renal mass is benign vs, malignant. There aren't many hospitals that have this technology but it's coming along in the future. Just wanted to pass on that UCLA has a molecular imaging program for those with renal masses to find out what they actually are in a minimally invasive way.

UCLA molecular imaging for small renal masses program:
