What we do and how we do it.....

PET- Positrion Emission Tomography

PET scan is a diagnostic imaging test that uses a small amount of radioactivity that is attached to a biologic substance that is similar to glucose. It is called Fluorodeoxyglucose (F18) or FDG.  It's like a radioactive sugar, therefore no side effects. PET scan can provide answers that no other imaging test can provide because it demonstrates the function of the body's cells often before the physical changes take place.


CT- provides information about the body's anatomy such as size, shape, and location. 

PET/CT Fused Images- PET and CT images are combined to allow the physician to pinpoint location.

Common uses of PET/CT 

  • Determine benign from malignant tumors in suspicious areas

  • Survey the whole body for cancer that may be present 

  • Monitor success of therapy

  • Detect recurrent tumors

  • Assess tumor aggressiveness

  • For evaluation of dementia and seizures


OpenView Gantry

The unique OpenView Gantry has a space between the PET and CT cameras. This provides an open air concept for patient comfort.  

The Gemini Time of Flight technology or TruFlight technology captures the time difference between coincident photo detection, acquires, and processes data in a totally different way than conventional cameras.   

  • It helps see more detail for more types of patients.

  • Our scans have minimal radiation dose.

  • Our whole-body PET acquisition times of approximately 15 minutes.

  • Increases diagnostic confidence by improved sensitivity.

  • Lower levels of noise.
