    Axumin scan and MRI

    I recently had both an Axumin PET scan and an MRI to confirm the results of the PET. The PET scan showed mets to my lower spine, the MRI(w/wo contrast) was negative.
    My Oncologist says that because the MRI was negative then the PET was showing false positives.
    Is this necessarily the case? Are Axumin PET scans overruled by MRIs?
