What is PET / CT Scan?
PET / CT Scan ( Positron Emission Tomography and Computerized Tomography) is the standard imaging tool that can help physicians locate the exact location of cancer. It helps in early and accurate detection that enables you to take the right treatment decisions at the right time.
The PET scan is a highly sensitive tool that can easily detect the metabolic signals of cancer cells that are actively growing within a person’s body. On the other hand, a CT scan offers precise internal anatomy images that clearly points out the shape, size and location of the cancerous growth. Thus, a combination of PET-CT scan helps in detecting the stage and details of cancer more accurately than any other detection method.
