A Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scan is a simple way to take pictures of your body's cells. We inject a radioactive tracer before your scan, allowing us see images of your organs and tissues at work.
We perform numerous different scans in the PET Imaging Center. This section provides detailed information for each scan, including what the scan is and how to prepare for it. Following these instructions will ensure obtaining the best test possible and reduce the chance of a scan delay or cancellation.
