Can you see bone cancer in the hips from a CT scan of the abdomen and pelvis?

Yes, some details se: Ct scan shows the normal anatomy of all the structures examined although it is not the best test for hip cancer which is best seen with a ct scan or MRI scan of the pelvis with a focus on the bones.
