A PET-CT scan (Positron Emission Tomography Computed Tomography) combines a CT and a PET scan into one. The scan produces a thorough three-dimensional picture of the internal anatomy and function using X-ray equipment and a radioactive tracer. 

A PET-CT scan is used to accurately diagnose certain types of cancer and track their metastases. The test discovers the exact location of tumour formations even in their early phases. This advanced nuclear imaging technique generates 2D and 3D images of the inside of your body while also showing how the cells in your body are functioning.

PET-CT scans can be used to detect cancer as well as monitor to see if it has spread to other areas of the body. It is also used to determine how well the body is responding to treatment. The scanner is increasingly being used to diagnose inflammatory and cardiovascular diseases.

What is a PET-CT scan?

A PET-CT (Positron Emission Tomography Computed Tomography) is an advanced technology scan, which combines a CT and a PET scan into one.

The scan uses X-ray technology together with a radioactive tracer to produce a detailed three-dimensional picture of the internal anatomy and function. It reveals information about both the structure and function of cells and tissues in the body.

PET is the function i.e. the radioactive substance used with the scan and CT is the place on the body where the scan will take place.

Advantages of a PET-CT scan:

  • Combining the 2 individual methods helps doctors detect diseases on a molecular level. Both scans are done simultaneously without requiring the patient to change positions.
  • Apart from the initial injection of radioactive material , the test is painless, and no recovery time is required.  The radioactive substance is naturally eliminated from the body within 24hrs.
