What is PET?
PET stands for positron emission tomography. It is a type of scanning that can be more “sensitive” than other imaging and help healthcare providers see how tissues and organs are functioning. It uses a special dye that contains radioactive tracers that help detect the activity inside the body at a cellular level. The machine produces 3D, color images of the functional processes within the body.
What are PET scanners used for?
PET scanners are often used to learn the stage of cancer and other diseases by using a radioactive tracer and analyzing the spread or activity.A PET scan or a combined CT-PET scan allows your healthcare provider to better diagnose illness and assess your condition. The images captured from a PET scan provide information different from other types of scans, such as computerized tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
What to expect from a PET scan?
When getting a PET scan, patients will receive an IV line of radiotracer that will be injected into the body. This allows the scan to pick up where sugar metabolizes within the body. It typically takes about 60 to 90 minutes for the radiotracer to start working. You’ll then be asked to lie down on a platform where you will be surrounded by a long tube. The PET scan machine typically takes between 20 to 40 minutes to capture all of the images needed for diagnosis.
