Procedure for a PET/CT Scan
A PET/CT scan can have a major impact on your physician’s diagnosis of a potential health problem, and if necessary, how your treatment plan is developed and managed.
A PET/CT exam not only helps your physician diagnose a problem, it also helps predict the likely outcome of various therapeutic alternatives to approach your treatment.
The beauty of the PET/CT scanner is that it allows both CT and PET images to be collected with a constant scanner geometry and minimal delay between the two acquisitions. This prevents motion and time delay problems that were one of the main reasons for the development of the PET/CT scanner.
