CT PET SCAN Positron Emission

Tomography scan, better known as PET imaging or a PET scan is a type of diagnostic imaging procedure used to evaluate organ and tissue function and look for signs of possible diseases, mainly cancer, in the body. It utilizes little amounts of radioactive material known as 'radiotracers' for the purpose of the imaging test. Radiotracer is a radioactive molecule that is safe to use for the procedure and is similar to glucose in its chemical structure, this allows for an easy diagnosis of tumors within the body as tumor cells are metabolically active and absorb glucose at a higher rate. inflammation, pinpointing the location and size of the tumor somewhat accurately.

A CT PET scan combines Once intravenously administered to the patient, radiotracers accumulate in tumors and regions of PET scan images with computed tomography (CT), which is essentially a computer-processed X-ray exam, to produce a much more detailed result that allows the doctor to combine and interpret data from two different exams on one image, leading to a more precise diagnosis.

CT Coronary Angiography

A computerized tomography (CT) coronary angiogram is a non-invasive imaging test that is mainly used to assess the condition of the arteries that supply blood to the heart. Unlike a traditional angiogram, this imaging test does not require any type of catheter insertion to the heart, Instead, this diagnostic procedure requires a powerful X-ray machine to produce images of the heart and its blood vessels to check for blockage or any other existing heart conditions. It often involves the use of a non-toxic contrast dye that is intravenously injected in order to highlight the tissues and blood vessels to provide a much more conclusive diagnosis.
