What is it
Positron Emission Tomography (PET) is a nuclear imaging technique that measures the metabolic activity in cells.
It is used primarily in patients who may have;
- oncologic issues
- cardiac issues
- neurological disorders.
PET shows the location of anomalies rather than an anatomical image. It is frequently used with CT for improved accuracy due to error correction and a more precise diagnosis.
Precision's Scanners Lead the Way in Our Region
Precision has two 64-slice PET/CT combination scanners leading the way in our region.
Precision deployed SubtlePET™ software to enhance the image quality on their PET exams. The clinical team was able to reduce the patient’s dose by approximately 15% and shorten the total scan time by nearly 40% without sacrificing image quality.
This results in a far better patient experience and improves overall quality by decreasing inherent patient motion.
