Understanding PET CT scan and its Significance in Diagnostics

Positron Emission Tomography, also commonly referred to as a PET scan, is an nuclear medicine based imaging technique which uses a radioactive tracer to reveal the health, functioning and metabolic activity of organs & tissues throughout your body in real-time. As the name suggests, this functional imaging technique generates images of internal structures based on the radiation or positrons emitted from the radioactive tracer administered to the individual.

A PET-CT scan combines two different imaging techniques: Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and Computed Tomography (CT). This powerful combination offers both functional and anatomical information, offering a more comprehensive picture of what's happening within your body.

This combined view can pinpoint the exact location of high metabolic activity within the targeted area,aiding in accurate diagnosis and treatment planning.
