D.I.S. 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?
