Positron Emission Tomography (PET) Scan
Inspira radiologists use PET scans to detect diseases often before other imaging tests can.
PET scans use a radioactive dye to map out your body’s organs. When the path of the dye is tracked, your physician will gain a clear picture of how your body is functioning.
What To Expect When You Have a PET Scan
Before your PET scan, your doctor may recommend you fast for at least 4 to 6 hours and drink plenty of water.
During your PET scan, a radiologist will inject your bloodstream with a small amount of dye charged with a radioactive tracer that travels throughout your body. Depending on what part of your body is being examined, you may also swallow or inhale the tracer.
By watching how the dye interacts with certain parts of your body, your doctor can identify where a disease is located and whether or not it has spread.
PET scans are commonly used to detect and trace dementia, cancer and epilepsy.
