Purpose, Procedure & Risks

Pet ScanPositron Emission Tomography, or PET scan, is a nuclear imaging approach used to measure the metabolic activity in tissue cells. The digital information acquired from a PET scan will indicate whether the cell in query has a standard, excessive or decreased metabolism. The results from PET scans only determine anomalies within the space of the physique that was scanned. While the knowledge obtained from a PET scan alone is beneficial in diagnosis, the results fail to produce anatomical images. Today, most state-of-the-art imaging centers have combined the PET scan with a CAT scan to construct vivid 2-D and 3-D pictures with exact visualization. We provide our radiologists with the most accurate PET/CT images available anyplace. We use a sixty four Slice PET/CT scanner that permits PET and CT pictures to be captured at totally different slice thicknesses for more accurate analysis and greater attenuation correction.
