    Question:

    How soon after cataract surgery can you have a PET scan (a special imaging test that helps diagnose or measure disease inside the body) for staging of melanoma?


    Answer:

    A PET scan does not place pressure on the eye, so as soon as you are comfortable, you can have the scan performed.
