PET (Positron Emission Tomography) is a functional imaging technique used to observe metabolic processes in a human body. PET is documented as a nuclear medicine. Nowadays, CT (Computed Tomography) X-ray scan is also performed on the patient during the same session and with the same machine.PET scan is a visualising test that permits the doctor to diagnose the ailments of the body. During the process, a dye is used which involves radioactive tracers. These tracers are vaccinated into the body through a vein in the arm. The tracer gets diluted in the body. With the help of the tracer, the doctors are able to get an idea if the internal body organs are working properly.

What Makes PET Scan So Unique?
  • The Biograph TruePoint technology used at Medanta combines the functional sensitivity of PET with the rich anatomical detail of diagnostic multislice - CT, which increases the resolution of images throughout the field of view.
  • The technology has been proven to increase the efficiency by 70%, giving the flexibility to lower dose rates or scan rates by 50%.
  • The much advanced and unique CT capabilities of Biograph TruePoint enhances the diagnostic confidence and system utilisation.
