PET AND PET/CT SCANS

A PET Scan allows physicians to measure the body’s abnormal molecular activity to detect conditions such as Cancer, Brain Disorder (Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s) and heart disease.

PET Scans are simple, painless and fast; offering patients and their families life-saving information that helps physicians detect and diagnose diseases early and quickly begin treatment.

 

PET/CT images are the fusion of two technologies. The highly sensitive PET Scan detects the metabolic signal of actively growing cancer cells in the body and the CT Scan provided a detailed picture of the internal anatomy that reveals the location, size and shape of abnormal cancerous growth.

Alone, each imaging test has particular benefits and limitations but when the results of PET and CT scans are “fused” together, the combined image provideds complete information on cancer location and metabolism.
