PET CT Heart

What is PET CT Heart?

Positron Emission Tomography (PET) or Computed Tomography (CT) scan is performed as an imaging test using a radioactive substance, which is known as a tracer to encounter any disease or bad blood flow to the heart. It is an important test to rehabilitate patients suffering from ventricular dysfunction because of coronary artery disease.

The scan is performed to check if all areas of heart muscles are receiving enough blood. It also gives the information if there is any heart damage, or scar in the heart muscles. As the procedure identifies changes at a cellular level, it usually detects the onset of any disease before it becomes evident on any other imaging tests. The technology provides a pain-free and non-surgical option for detecting any malfunctioning in the body at an early stage.

What are the Benefits and Risks of this technology?

The latest technology ‘PET CT scan’ that helps in detecting the abnormalities on cellular basis has a lot of benefits, but the process may come with some minor risks too.

  • The scan gives an early and precise diagnosis.
  • The procedure of PET CT scan is precise in staging and localisation of the patient.
  • The scan offers accurate monitoring and treatment.

The benefits of the scan usually outweigh the risks. However, some potent risks are:

  • Radiation exposure: The body is exposed to harmful radiation, however, the amount of exposure is within the national recommended levels.
  • In pregnant ladies: The doct
