This scan is performed to check suspicious prostate cancer spread before therapy or recurrence based on rising blood prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels.
These exams often need pre-authorization. Letting us know about changes before the test can help lessen delays.
Call the P.E.T Center 1-319-356-4100.
We can give you a medicine to help you relax. You will need a licensed driver with you before we can give you this medicine.
If you have any other test today and are told not to eat or drink, follow those instructions.
During the test we will give you a small amount of radioactive tracer into your vein through an intravenous catheter (IV).
