PET/CT

PET/CT combines two scanning techniques into one exam: PET (Positron Emission Tomography) and CT (Computed Tomography). PET shows different functions in the body, like cell activity; while CT shows detailed body anatomy. Both of these scans are performed at the same time with the PET/CT machine, during one appointment. The PET and CT images are merged to create 3D pictures that show any abnormal cell activity/growth and location.

What to Expect


What is PET/CT For?


PET/CT is primarily used in cancer diagnosis, staging and treatment monitoring. This information may help determine and guide potential treatments. CT scanning combines special x-ray equipment with sophisticated computers to produce multiple images or pictures and provides more detailed information on head injuries, stroke, brain tumors, and other brain diseases. These low dose images are then combined with the molecular imaging acquired by a PET screening. The combination provides physicians with very detailed information regarding tumors and the affects of patient treatments.

33.8% Less Radiation Dose


Intego, an innovative PET/CT infusion system, reduces radiation dose by determining FDG amounts by patient weight, and actually reduces radiation dose by up to 33.8%! It’s great news for patients ─ far less radiation dose with the same excellent care and image quality.

Imagine smarter, safer, simpler PET:

  • Automate Infusion
  • Standardize Protocols
  • Personalize Doses
  • Reduce Exposure
