The combined PET CT imaging provides both structural and functional imaging of the body tissues and organs in a single imaging session providing a more robust diagnosis than either scan can produce independently.
PET CT scan is an imaging test that helps reveal how your tissues and organs are functioning. This scan can sometimes detect disease before it shows up on other imaging tests. It provides unique information that may assist in making a diagnosis, making decisions about treatment or providing a prognosis, that is, the likely outcome of any cancer. provide information on how tissue or organs are working, which cannot be obtained from other imaging techniques.
The painless procedure which is in measuring both anatomical on metabolic function of the organs within the patient body in this single study.
Since the PET imaging uses metabolic function of the tumour it is useful in biopsies.
Its ability to differentiate between cancerous and non-cancerous mass it is minimising the number of unnecessary surgeries also wrong procedures because of wrong staging dated diagnosis.
PET scan is effective useful in early diagnosis and staging of neurological illness such as Alzheimer’s disease epilepsy is an Parkinson’s disease.
It is easy non-invasive, painless procedure and requires no recovery and can assume normal activity after a PET scan.
