Capitol Imaging Services shares a short video about one person’s road to surviving cancer, and the role PET/CT played in her experience.
PET/CT is an imaging tool that combines two scan techniques in one exam – a PET scan and a CT scan. PET/CT is mainly used for diagnosis, staging or re-staging malignant disease and metastases and evaluation of treatment response. It may also be used to differentiate dementia verses Alzheimer’s disease. The two procedures together provide information about the location, nature of and the extent of the lesion. In other words, it answers questions like: Where is the tumor, how big is it, is it malignant, benign or due to inflammatory change, and has the cancer spread?
PET/CT is performed at Capitol Imaging Services affiliates in Alexandria and Lake Charles, LA and in Texarkana, TX. These centers are accredited by the American College of Radiology in PET/CT, meaning that they met or exceeded the standards set by the American College of Radiology for quality, patient safety, equipment and technologist expertise.
Capitol Imaging Services is the largest independent radiology practice of its type serving the Southeastern United States. Not only do we perform the scan such as a PET/CT, we provide the radiology expertise to review test images and issue critical findings to physicians and other medical providers.
We also work to lower out of pocket costs by bundling everything we do for a PET/CT study in one fee. For people with unfulfilled health insurance deductibles, co-insurance or co-payments, this is a major financial benefit. This benefit is enjoyed without sacrificing the quality of the exam or their results.
