PET/CT

What is PET/CT?Positron Emission Tomography ACR Logo Accredited Facility

PET/CT is a powerful imaging technique that holds great promise in the diagnosis and treatment of many diseases, particularly
cancer. A non-invasive test, PET/CT accurately images metabolic and anatomic information in the human body in a single scan. This allows your physician to examine your entire body at once. PET/CT provides a more complete picture, making it easier for your doctor to diagnose problems, determine the extent of disease, prescribe treatment, and track progress.

PET/CT combines computerized tomography (CT, or CAT scan for short) with the nuclear medicine study: PET. The combination of these scans help diagnose and stage cancer, differentiate different forms of dementia, and Parkinson’s Disease.
