Diseases like cancer are now so pervasive that doctors have felt the constant need to recommend a PET-CT scan, a diagnostic imaging test primarily to detect several ailments. The Positron emission tomography (PET)-CT scan is a test that performs the following two scans together:
This scan marks the most active cells in the body. During the test, doctors inject small doses of radioactive tracers into the patient. These tracers are immediately uptaken by the most active cancer cells in the body. Doctors then use the scan component to check for the presence of cancer, highlight and mark it for treatment.
The Computed Tomography scan (CT Scan) is performed along with a PET scan to evaluate the body as a whole for tests. Before the CT scan begins, the patients must take an oral contrast to drink. At times, the physicians also direct the patients to inject an intravenous contrast during the scan.
