What is PET/CT For?
PET/CT is primarily used in cancer diagnosis, staging and treatment monitoring. This information may help determine and guide potential treatments. CT scanning combines special x-ray equipment with sophisticated computers to produce multiple images or pictures and provides more detailed information on head injuries, stroke, brain tumors, and other brain diseases. These low dose images are then combined with the molecular imaging acquired by a PET screening. The combination provides physicians with very detailed information regarding tumors and the affects of patient treatments.
33.8% Less Radiation Dose
Intego, an innovative PET/CT infusion system, reduces radiation dose by determining FDG amounts by patient weight, and actually reduces radiation dose by up to 33.8%! It’s great news for patients ─ far less radiation dose with the same excellent care and image quality.
Imagine smarter, safer, simpler PET:
- Automate Infusion
- Standardize Protocols
- Personalize Doses
- Reduce Exposure
