State Of The Art 3D Imaging
PET/CT stands for positron emission tomography (PET) and computed tomography (CT) used in combination together. This breakthrough technology represents the very latest innovation in diagnostic imaging and is utilized by the experts at our Los Angeles facility.
PET/CT scanning technology allows the doctors at Beverly Hills Cancer Center to use a special type of camera and a tracer (radioactive glucose) to look at organs in the body with great contrast and clarity. It helps identify and localize cancer faster than ever before, enabling physicians to make an accurate diagnosis, and aids in critical treatment decisions.
People who are sent by their doctors for a PET/CT scan will receive complete instructions about how to prepare, what to wear, what to expect and a thorough explanation of the procedure.
