National Oncologic PET Registry (NOPR)
The purpose of this research study is to help The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) determine if they should pay for PET scans for additional reasons and additional types of cancer (other than what they already pay for). In order to collect the information needed to decide which other types of cancer should be covered by Medicare, CMS will provide payment for the PET scans of patients who are properly registered with the National Oncologic PET Registry (NOPR). This will help determine the effect PET scans have on the way physicians planned to treat their patients.
