Positron Emission Tomography / Computed Tomography (PET / CT)

PET / CT is a technology that merges a picture of function (PET) with a picture of anatomy (CT). Fused together, they offer images of the body’s metabolism & structure. The PET part of the exam uses radioactive tracers to demonstrate the cellular function. The exams are very useful to evaluate and diagnose cancer, heart disease, and Alzheimer’s disease. This sophisticated service is available numerous times through-out the month.
