What are PET/CT? What are they used for?
PET/CT can be a useful tool in evaluation, radiation therapy treatment planning, baseline staging, as well as monitoring for brain, cervical, colorectal, esophageal, head and neck, lung, lymphoma, and melanoma.
The new GE Discovery PET/CT 600 scanner delivers the highest sensitivity in the industry, enabling physicians to detect disease at an earlier stage, potentially lowering radiation exposure and providing faster patient exams.
One of the greatest challenges in imaging is the motion from breathing, the beating heart and other muscles can blur images, affecting image quality and accuracy. The motion-free platform of the Discovery PET/CT allows physicians to see areas affected by movement more clearly.
The PET/CT is now available at the Medical Sciences Pavilion on the Community Campus.
