Pseudoprogression or recurrent tumor?

Hello, I would like to know if someone has experienced with pseudoprogression / early recurrent tumor? My husbands last MRI 3 months after finishing radio/chemotherapy showed a new contrast enhancing spot (nearly 1cm large). The report from the radiologist said it is cleary a recurrent tumor, no pseudoprogression due to the hyperperfusion and r-cbv values. Our oncologist said my husband should make a pet-scan. Any experiences? Is there hope that it could be a pseudoprogression even if the perfusion mri sais that is not possible? The mri during the radio/chemotherapy an 3 weeks after the terapy were good, conclusion favorable evolution. We are shocked :(
