Positron emission tomography (PET) and computed tomography (CT) is a powerful imaging technique that holds great promise in the diagnosis and treatment of many diseases, particularly cancer. This noninvasive scanning technique accurately images metabolic and anatomic information in the human body in a single scan. This allows physicians to examine the entire body at the same time. A PET/CT scan provides a more complete picture, making it easier for physicians to diagnose problems, determine the extent of disease, prescribe treatment and track progress.
