PET (positron emission tomography) and CT (computed tomography) imaging have become essential diagnostic tools physicians use to reveal the presence and severity of cancer, neurological conditions and cardiovascular disease.
Combining these technologies in a single study through PET-CT imaging has proven to be effective in better understanding these conditions. For patients with cancer, PET-CT is helpful in both detecting cancer and determining the extent to which a patient's therapy is working.
