What is PET/CT?

PET/CT is a form of diagnostic imaging that uses a radiotracer to target the molecular activity of cells.

Facts about PET/CT:

  • PET/CT is a powerful exam for diagnosing and determining the stage of many types of cancer including: lung, head and neck, colorectal, esophageal, lymphoma, melanoma, breast, thyroid, cervical, pancreatic and brain cancers.
  • PET/CT results provide the oncologist the information needed to determine the most effective therapy option.
  • By detecting whether lesions are benign or malignant, PET/CT scans may eliminate the need for surgical biopsy or identify the optimal biopsy location.
  • PET/CT scans are used to follow patients after treatment to check for recurrence of cancer.
