PET CT scan is an imaging technique that combines both PET (Positron Emission Tomography) scanner and CT (an X-RAY computed Tomography) scanner to take sequential images at the same time. It is an ultimate tool that can scan both the metabolic and anatomical changes in the diseased tissue or tumor in the body. The device incorporates a CT scanner molded between two PET scanners and is a revolutionary technique to diagnose dreadful tumors, Alzheimer’s, and heart diseases at initial stages.
The process will last for about 30 minutes and involves injecting a dose of glucose mixed with a radioactive isotope, usually fluorine (FDG), into the patients’ veins before starting the scan. The combined technologies of PET and CT scans will provide the physicians with clear imagery of both the abnormal cellular activities and the size&location of the tumor in the patients’ bodies.
Various diagnostic procedures such as radiation therapy, surgical planning, cancer staging and oncology are migrating fast towards PET-CT scan from conventional PET scans because of its cost-effectiveness and immense advantages in diagnosing benign and malignant tumors.
