Convenient PET/CT Scans
A PET/CT scan combines both technologies into one machine. It provides a picture of cellular function, a picture of the physical structure, a merged picture of the body’s cellular function and physical structure.
A PET/CT is a diagnostic method that combines two imaging techniques in one exam.
Positron emission tomography (PET) detects changes in the body on a cellular level. Since cellular changes take place before physical ones do, a PET scan can help your doctor make an earlier diagnosis or determine if your current treatment is working effectively.
Computer-assisted tomography (CT) uses x-rays to creates a detailed view of the physical structure of your organs and tissue. CT scans can show the dimensions of your vessels, lymph nodes and organ systems.
