Diagnostic Imaging Services shares an explanation of PET scans, also known as Positron Emission Tomography.
The benefits of PET/CT images in the entire spectrum of cancer care— from diagnosis and treatment planning to evaluation of treatment response — have come into focus in recent years as the technology has become a standard practicec.
The value of PET/CT
PET/CT provides accurate disease staging and localization for biopsy, surgery or treatment planning.
PET/CT detects residual or recurrent disease and is an excellent diagnostic procedure to differentiate tumor recurrences from radiation necrosis or post-surgical changes. Such an approach allows for the development of a more rational treatment plan for the patient. PET/CT can help guide further therapy by either confirming response or signaling the need for a change in therapy.
