holds great promise in the diagnosis and
treatment of many diseases, particularly cancer.
A non-invasive test, PET scans accurately image
the cellular function of the human body. In a
single PET scan your physician can examine your
entire body. PET scanning provides a more
complete picture, making it easier for your
doctor to diagnose problems, determine the extent
of disease, prescribe treatment, and track
progress.

Procedure of PET scans
A little quantity of radioactive material is used
in a PET scan. The tracer is then given by the
means of a vein that is located within the elbow.
The tissues and organs are then collected as the
tracer is traveling through the blood. A patient
is required to wait for about 1 hour as the body
is absorbing the tracer. A patient then lies down
on the table that slides into a big scanner. The
signals from the tracer are then detected by a
PET scan. These signals are then changed into 3-D
images by the computer.
A doctor then can read these images that are
displayed on a monitor. Any physical movement of
patient during the teat can cause errors and blur
images. After the procedure, no problems can be
seen in the position, size, or shape of an organ.
