PET Scan

Positron emission tomography scan, also called PET scan or PET imaging, is a highly specialized nuclear imaging test that uses small amounts of radioactive substances to produce powerful images of the body’s biological function. A PET scan is non-invasive and usually painless. PET scan uses a special camera and a radioactive chemical tracer to view organs in the body. The radionuclide’s used in PET scans are chemical substances such as glucose, carbon, or oxygen used naturally by the particular organ or tissue during its metabolic process.
