PET/CT Imaging

PET/CT Imaging

A PET scan creates an image of how the body is functioning and CT scan creates an image of the body’s anatomy – combined, they provide the most accurate test for many types of diseases.

PET/CT Imaging Benefits:

  • Clear visualization
  • Non-invasive alternative to angiography
  • Acquires information and images in seconds
  • Guides treatment of common conditions
  • Determines when surgeries are necessary

About PET/CT Scan

Positron emission tomography–computed tomography (better known as PET-CT or PET/CT) is a medical imaging technique using a device which combines in a single gantry system both a positron emission tomography (PET) scanner and an x-ray computed tomography (CT) scanner, so that images acquired from both devices can be taken sequentially, in the same session, and combined into a single superposed (co-registered) image. Thus, functional imaging obtained by PET, which depicts the spatial distribution of metabolic or biochemical activity in the body can be more precisely aligned or correlated with anatomic imaging obtained by CT scanning. Two- and three-dimensional image reconstruction may be rendered as a function of a common software and control system.

PET-CT has revolutionized medical diagnosis in many fields, by adding precision of anatomic localization to functional imaging, which was previously lacking from pure PET imaging. For example, many diagnostic imaging procedures in oncology, surgical planning, radiation therapy and cancer staging have been changing rapidly under the influence of PET-CT availability, and centers have been gradually abandoning conventional PET devices and substituting them by PET-CTs. Although the combined/hybrid device is considerably more expensive, it has the advantage of providing both functions as stand-alone examinations, being, in fact, two devices in one.
