Positron Emission Tomography and Computerized Tomography, invented in 2000, is a highly reliable and efficient Imaging tool that was created by fusing two major clinical imaging disciplines; nuclear medicine and radiology. So now the advantages of 2 different processes can be utilized in one go and in a single scan. PET CT helps physicians identify the exact location of the cancer in a patient’s body before making treatment sanctions. Along with this, it also aids staging, monitoring of treatment and evaluation of relapses. This tool, along with cancer, is also effectively used for cardiology, neurology, infections and inflammatory disease applications.
A Cyclotron in medicine refers to a medical imaging machine or tool that produces relatively short-lived radioactive atoms or radioisotopes. These new radioactive elements are useful for patient care and research. For instance, fluorine-18 which is one of the major isotopes, has tremendous clinical benefits and aids the imaging of patients being diagnosed for or suffering from cancer or other neurological, cardiological, inflammatory and infectious diseases. Please share PET-CT Scan offer on your social media profiles.
