Procedures & Tests - PET Scan

(This procedure/test may also be known as: Positron Emission Tomography Scan)

Positron Emission Tomography (PET) is a camera that produces powerful images of the human body and allows the physician to see what is happening inside the body. PET/CT is a non-invasive procedure that provides unique information about the body’s metabolism, cell function and exact location of a disease – information not available through CT or MRI alone.

Research has shown that PET/CT can effectively pinpoint the source of many of the most common cancers. PET/CT can give physicians important information about cardiac and neurological diseases, streamlining testing and decreasing the need for invasive biopsies. Because PET/CT scans are pictures of the body’s chemistry, many diseases can be seen in their earliest stages.
