PET/CT

Positron emission tomography (PET) fused with computed tomography (CT) is a nuclear medicine procedure that produces pictures of the body's metabolic functions. Physicians use PET/CT images to diagnose and manage patient treatment plans for many diseases in the fields of oncology, cardiology and neurology.

PET creates images of high metabolic activity in the body rather than creating images of anatomy only. CT technology provides anatomic information about where the lesion is located. Together, a PET/CT scan allows our physicians to view metabolic activity and pinpoint where abnormal lesions are located so that they may target the disease. A PET/CT's capability of early detection can save time and healthcare costs. PET/CT images help physicians select more effective therapies and improve patient care, while ultimately helping to save lives.
