St. Mary's offers the ONLY in-house PET/CT (Positron Emission Tomography) in the tri-state; other sites offer a mobile service. Patients can benefit from having their test scheduled within 24 hours, and in most cases, results reported to their physician on the same day. This means chemotherapy and other treatments can be started sooner.
PET/CT scanning delivers what no other imaging technology can: a precise view of how the body functions. It is 100% digital (filmless).
Research has shown that PET/CT can effectively pinpoint the source of many of the most common cancers and give physicians important early information about cardiac and neurological diseases, streamlining testing and decreasing the need for invasive biopsies. Because PET/CT scans are pictures of the body's chemistry, many diseases can be seen in their earliest stages. Scan time takes approximately 45 minutes. Total time in the PET/CT department is approximately 1.5 - 2 hours. View additional information about the Pet Scanning procedure.
