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.
