Combined PET and CT imaging allows doctors to pinpoint cancers easily, including brain tumors.

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.
