80 Discount for Full Body PET CT Scan in Mumbai
PET- Positron Emission Tomography Scan is a form
of imaging diagnosis or test that allows the
physician to check for diseases in a human body.
The scan uses special radioactive material that
is injected into the veins of the patient along
with glucose. The organs absorb these radioactive
glucose traces and under the PET scanner, the
physician can look for how well the organs and
tissues working. The PET CT also helps the doctor
measure the blood flow, oxygen use and how your
body uses sugar. PET/CT scan is usually useful
and is commonly used to detect cancer, heart
problems, brain disorders and problems with the
central nervous system.
Role of PET CT scans in Cancer Diagnosis Cancer
is a life threatening disease. It usually occurs
when the cells in the human body grow
chaotically. A human body is healthy and
functions properly when cells grow, divide and
produce more cells as and when necessary. There
are instances when the cells keep growing and
diving even when it is not needed. The mass of
these extra cells forms a growth or a tumor.
These can be benign or malignant. Benign tumors
are usually not life threatening. They can be
removed and in most cases, they dont return. But
malignant tumors are cancerous and life
threatening. These cells divide abnormally and
without control. They also break away from the
current place and spread to the other parts of
the body.
PET CT Scanners were introduced commercially in
2002. The usefulness of this scanning machine has
been published in many articles across the web.
PET CT scan helps the doctors to detect cancer.
The radioactive glucose that enters the veins of
the body helps the doctors to effectively point
out the source of cancer and whether the cancer
is isolated to one particular area or has spread
to other organs. It has been helpful in managing
a wide variety of cancers, especially the solid
tumors. PET CT scan also helps the doctors to
determine the size of the tumor. Post detection,
it is helpful to select the treatments that are
appropriate for the patients, monitor whether the
treatment is working or not and detect if the
cancer has returned.
Follow up PET-CT scans after having completed
cancer treatments and in absence of symptoms adds
to the stress level as a cancer survivor. During
follow up scans, these tests may find health
problems that are not serious. This may lead to
more tests and procedures, effecting hard on your
body and pockets. PET CT Scan procedure The
combination of positron emission tomography (PET)
and computed tomography (CT) into one single
machine is an advanced nuclear imaging technique.
This test provides information about the
functioning of the cells and tissues in the human
body. The patient will be asked to fast a few
hours (6 hours approx) before the scan. During
this scan, the patient is injected with a
solution which is a mixture of glucose and
radioactive materials in the veins. The organs
and tissues to be examined absorb this solution.
The PET CT scanner is an O shaped machine,
similar to a tunnel. The patient needs to rest
over a table and slide into the scanner. The
cancerous cells usually use more glucose than the
normal cells. Hence they get highlighted under
the PET CT scanner. The doctors then can see the
highlighted damaged or cancerous cells and
determine the size and grade of the tumor. This
is a painless procedure and the time varies
depending on the part of the body that is being
diagnosed. The patient usually spends two to
three hours at the imaging center including the
60 minutes resting time before the scan and the
actual scan takes around 20 90 minutes. The
images are captured during a single session and
with a high level of accuracy.
Post this scan the doctors can usually
decide on the appropriate treatment to be
advised. The doctor may advise for a more number
of sessions to have a check on how the patient is
responding to the treatment and whether the
treatment is working or not. Depending on the
symptoms the scan may be repeated post treatment
as well.
  • Risks Benefits
  • PET CT scans have its list of benefits and risks.
    Let us have a look at the benefits first,
  • Helps detect and diagnose life threatening
    diseases like cancer, heart problems, brain
    disorders and problems associated with central
    nervous system.
  • In case of cancer, it helps locate the cancer,
    whether it is static or spread to the other
  • Helps the doctor differentiate between benign
    and malignant tumors.
  • Helps determine an appropriate treatment, and
    can check whether the patient is responding to
    the treatment.
  • Post treatment, depending upon the symptoms,
    usually helps to find if the cancer has returned.

  • PET CT scan uses radioactive material, but there
    is minimal exposure to harmful radiations. This
    scan is associated with few risks too, such as
  • Adds up stress and anxiety if scanned without a
    good reason, leading to wrong diagnosis,
    unnecessary added tests and false health alarms.
  • Multiple PET CT scans can definitely expose a
    patient to high level of radiation. Repetitive
    scans can be taken only if needed and shows that
    they would help.
  • PET CT scan is not advisable for pregnant
    ladies. It is not considered safe for developing
    fetus. The scan cannot be taken even if the
    patient is breast-feeding.
  • It is also harmful for the patients with kidney
    disease and who have high level of creatinine in
    their body.
  • There is a possibility that a patient can have
    an allergic reaction to the solution injected
  • General risk includes the discomfort caused if
    the patient is claustrophobic

Actual cost vs Discounted Cost for PET CT Scan in
Mumbai Nuclear medicine is taking new heights
for medical diagnosis, from earlier traditional
scanning methods to the present day high end
technological advancements in imaging radiology.
The tests that come under this category are
positron emission tomography (PET), structural
computerized tomography (CT) and magnetic
resonance imaging (MRI). It takes a lot to set up
a PET-CT scan center, nearly 100 crores,
including the facilities, technicians and
doctors. It is a must to have an approval from
the Atomic Energy Regulatory Board (AERB) to run
a PET CT Scan center. Presently, very few well
established hospitals and diagnostic centers have
this approval. There are only 21 medical
cyclotrons (producer of the cancer imaging PET
isotope, fludeoxyglucose (FDG) F-18) in both, the
private and public sector, supplying the FDG to
the 108 PET facility centers set up in the metro
cities of India.
Since all this process and procedures are highly
expensive, the PET CT scans also ends up to be
the most expensive tests in India. PET CT Scan
costs can vary depending on the hospital or the
laboratory you choose to go. There are few
specialist PET labs that charge lesser than the
hospitals in Mumbai. The cost of full body PET CT
scan for cancer in Mumbai ranges from INR 11,000
to INR 30,000. The average price is considered to
be INR 20,000. Few of the well known PET scan
centers in Mumbai are partnered with

How to find the Quality of PET CT scan centers in
Mumbai PET CT Scan is highly technical imaging
radiology test. A center having a PET CT Scanner
needs an approval from the Atomic Energy
Regulatory Board (AERB). This is because the
radionuclides that are produced by the cyclotron
have higher energy than any other materials used
for other type of diagnosis. All the centers
approved by AERB need to follow the regulatory
requirements and take the radiation safety
precautions. These centers also need to be ISO
(International Organization for Standardization)
and NABL (National Accreditation Board for
Testing and Calibration Laboratories) to make
sure they are certified for delivering consistent
level of quality services and for maintaining
technical competence for testing.
With all the regulatory requirements of Radiation
Safety Measures and protocols as per AERB,
quality services, infection control and waste
management as per ISO and NABL, it also takes the
centers to have the well trained medical and
technical staff. A trained and qualified Nuclear
Medicine Radiologist should be well aware of
basic principles of the PET CT Scan technique,
radioprotection concepts, well aware of the
problems that may rise due to the radioactive
glucose induced to the patient and experienced in
interpreting the images of PET CT scan. Apart
from this, the model of the equipment used (the
latest in the market is 64 Slice system) and the
reports generated also decide the quality of a
PET CT Scan center. Patients can find these
quality certified PET CT Scan centers in Mumbai
