Positron Emission Tomography-Computed Tomography (PET/CT) Imaging

PET/CT is a combination of two established imaging modalities in a single device.  PET uses a small amount of radiotracer, a special camera and a computer to help evaluate organ and tissue functions, and is combined with CT scan to produce fusion images that lead to more precise information and accurate diagnosis than the two scans performed separately.

At Beacon Hospital, we use PET/CT scans to guide the diagnosis and treatment of cancer, by obtaining accurate information on the location, size, nature and extent of the disease.

This non-invasive and easy-to-perform imaging modality allows for earlier diagnosis and more accurate cancer staging.
