PET Scan (Positron Emission Tomography)
Palos Imaging & Diagnostics offers Positron Emission Tomography (PET Scan), a highly advanced medical imaging tool that shows your body's metabolic activity. A PET scan is most commonly used to detect and locate a variety of common cancers, as well as to determine if and where a cancer has spread or if it has responded to therapy. PET scans also may be used to assess cardiac conditions and neurological conditions such as Alzheimer's or dementia.
PET scans are non-invasive. They are often performed in conjunction with a CT scan, and the images are viewed side by side for comparison, allowing the doctor a more complete view of what is occurring inside your body.
Convenient evening and weekend hours are available
