Positron Emission Tomography (PET) is a powerful imaging technique that holds great promise in the diagnosis and treatment of many diseases, particularly cancer. A non-invasive test, PET scans accurately image the body's physiologic changes. A Computed Tomography (CT) scan shows structure of the anatomy where the changes are taking place. Combining these two scans in one highly sophisticated PET/CT imaging technique provides, during a single outpatient exam,
detailed information to physicians about the presence or spread of desease and accurately identifies its precise location.
PET/CT imaging combines two tests in one and provides a unique representation of what is happenning in the body. This can help physicians accurately diagnose many deseases at earlier stages when treatment is more likely to be effective. Its accuracy may help to precisely localize desease to aid in planning the right treatment for each patient, reducing unnecessary procedures and saving valuable time. For patients undergoing treatment, a PET/CT scan can provide a clearer assessment of how each person is responding. This is how PET/CT imaging is truly impacting individual lives.
