Positron Emission Tomography (PET) imaging is a Nuclear Medicine procedure that shows the molecular functioning of organs and tissues. It is used to evaluate a variety of diseases, and is able to detect the chemical and physiological changes of disease at a cellular level. This diagnostic examination develops images of the human body that provide information that often allows for earlier detection and more accurate diagnosis of diseases.
PET Scans and CT scans are done simultaneously for a more accurate reading of the patient's findings. With a combined PET/CT, the PET image provides a measurement of metabolic activity and the CT image provides a detailed picture of the internal anatomy.
Being able to see metabolic changes at their earliest stages can be vital in discovering and treating many diseases:
