PET/CT Scan Procedure

About the PET/CT Scan Procedure

PET/CT is a diagnostic imaging tool that utilizes state-of-the-art software to combine images from a PET scanner and a CT scanner. This cutting edge technology allows physicians to accurately pinpoint potentially cancerous lesions in the body, enabling them to diagnose, stage, and treat many forms of cancers. PET/CT can often identify lesions before other imaging modalities.

While PET/CT is an important tool used for patients with known or suspected cancer, it is also very helpful for patients with certain neurological diseases such as Alzheimer's.

PET/CT allows physicians to:

  • Accurately stage cancer
  • Monitor response to treatment
  • Precisely target radiation treatments
  • Detect early recurrences
  • Assist in the diagnosis and treatment of Neurological disorders
