Nuclear Medicine PET CT

Positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) is a rapidly growing modality which has made a tremendous impact in the care of patients with cancer.

PET scans use a small amount of a radioactive substance, or tracer, to show differences between healthy tissue and diseased tissue.
