A PET/CT exam is a valuable diagnostic tool as it combines the precision of anatomic localization (CT Scanning) to functional imaging (PET Scanning)
A PET scan measures important body functions, such as blood flow, oxygen use, and sugar (glucose) metabolism to evaluate how well organs and tissues are functioning.
CT imaging produces excellent anatomic images and information.
PET/CT Scanners combine these two technologies to provide images that pinpoint the location of abnormal metabolic activity within the body. The combined scans have been shown to provide more accurate diagnoses than the two scans performed separately.
PET/CT scans are performed to:
