PET/CT scans are simple, painless and fast. They offer patients and their families life-saving information that helps physicians detect and diagnose diseases early in order to quickly begin treatment.
A PET/CT scan allows physicians to measure the body's abnormal molecular cell activity to detect:
- Brain disorders, including Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease and epilepsy.
- Cancer, including breast cancer, lung cancer, colorectal cancer, lymphoma, melanoma and other skin cancers.
- Heart disease, including coronary artery disease.
PET/CT scanning and molecular imaging provide real life answers to better diagnose illness, guide treatment options, and give patients ultimate control over their critical and vital health care decisions.
