Mobile PET-CT is available at Carney Hospital
The most innovative, non-invasive and powerful imaging technology, PET-CT combines today’s most advanced Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scanner with the fastest and most sophisticated Computed Tomography (CT) technology – all in a single exam. PET-CT scans similarly can detect recurrences and metastases of cancers and has the ability to monitor the effectiveness of treatment and adjust the plan during, rather than at the end of, treatment. While fine-tuned for cancer care, PET-CT is also used for neurological and cardiovascular imaging.
