What is a PET/CT Scan?
PET/CT combines Positron Emission Tomography (PET) with Computed Tomography (CT) to provide one of the most advanced medical imaging technique available.
A PET scan is a type of nuclear medicine exam that uses radioactive material to measure glucose metabolism, which reveals information about how tissues and organs function. A CT scan uses multiple images to create a three-dimensional picture of the inside of the body, providing detailed anatomic information. Together, they provide a much clearer picture of disease than with either procedure alone—and potentially before it is evident on other imaging tests.
