What is a PET/CT Scan?
PET (Positron Emission Tomography) imaging pinpoints metabolic activity in cells of the human body.
Metabolic changes in disease often occur before structural changes that can be seen on CT.
PET/CT fuses these two images together allowing the physician to view the metabolic changes in the proper anatomical context of the body.
PET/CT imaging is most commonly used to assist with the diagnosis and monitoring of cancer, cardiac disease, Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.
