A PET scan allows physicians to measure the body's abnormal molecular cell activity to detect
Cancer (such as breast cancer, lung cancer, colorectal cancer, lymphoma, melanoma and other skin cancers),
Brain Disorders (such as Alzheimer's Disease, Parkinson's Disease, and epilepsy), and
Heart Disease (such as coronary artery disease).
PET scans are simple, painless, and fast, offering patients and their families life-saving information that helps physicians detect and diagnose diseases early and quickly begin treatment. PET scanning and molecular imaging provide real life answers to better diagnose illness, guide treatment options, and give patients ultimate control over their critical and vital health care decisions.
