What is a PET/CT Scan?

The PET/CT scan is an advanced imaging study used by doctors when evaluating patients who may or may not have cancer. It allows them to effectively diagnose and evaluate cancer and whether or not it has spread to other areas of the body. It is often used to measure the response of a tumor to therapy, which ultimately guides therapeutic decisions.

Why Use PET/CT?

PET/CT can detect cancers in their earliest stages. PET/CT images the metabolic activity or function of the body’s tissues, often identifying cancerous sites before they can be detected by conventional anatomic techniques such as CT or MR. PET/CT is a powerful tool in the assessment of non-specific findings detected on x-ray, CT or MRI. PET/CT is able to more accurately characterize findings, leading to more appropriate management. Consequently, unnecessary procedures or tests that present risk and cost to the patient can be reliably avoided in many instances. PET/CT also aids in surgical planning and radiation therapy planning, leading to more focused interventions at lower risk and cost to the patient while providing a higher likelihood of success.
