PET SCAN/CT

Low-dose CT machine

Positron-emission tomography (PET) is a nuclear medicine functional imaging technique that is used to observe metabolic processes in the body as an aid to the diagnosis of disease. The system detects pairs of gamma rays emitted indirectly by a positron-emitting radionuclide (tracer), which is introduced into the body on a biologically active molecule. Three-dimensional images of tracer concentration within the body are then constructed by computer analysis.

 

Our advanced PET-CT scanners, three-dimensional imaging is accomplished with the aid of a CT X-ray scan performed on the patient during the same session, in the same machine.

 

At JKC Clinic, a low-dose computerized tomography (CT) scan is done at the same time to help further show internal anatomy.
