What is Pet CT?
The technology of positron emission tomography (PET-CT), combined with computed tomography (CT), is an important method of technological medical imaging that allows the diagnosis of many diseases. PET/CT is widely used in the diagnosis and staging of cancer. PET-CT helps in early detection of cancer, staging of cancer in cases where it is suspected, and treatment planning.
In cases where you have doubts or want to do a preventive check, doing a PET CT would be a good solution.
Difference between CT and PET-CT
CT scan shows detailed pictures of organs and tissues inside your body. PET-CT is more accurate in determining the site and type of cancer than other imaging tests. This type of scan can even prevent cancers as it allows early detection by identifying abnormal activities in the body.
