PET/CT (Positron Emission Tomography) is a new modality with integration of PET and CT systems. The highly sensitive PET scan detects the metabolic signal of actively growing cancer cells in the body and the CT scan provides a detailed picture of the internal anatomy that reveals the location, size and shape of abnormal cancerous growths. This allows physicians to pinpoint the location of cancer within the body before making treatment recommendations. A PET CT scan can distinguish between benign and malignant disorders unlike other imaging technologies which barely confirm the presence of mass.
