PET/CT is an acronym that stands for two methods of imaging: Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and Computed Tomography (CT).Â The combination of these imaging methods can detect conditions that were previously undetectable by traditional imaging.
We try to make all of our patients feel comfortable when having a PET/CT. We understand how nervous you and your family may be at this sensitive time. We have created a spa like area separated from the rest of the office.Â Each patient has their own waiting area. You will be given a spa like robe, get injected with a radioactive tracer and will be given a 32 oz. bottle of contrast flavor of your choice. You will stay in this room for 40-60 minutes where you can read or watch your own television.
