PET scans near Albany, Georgia

About PET scans in Albany, Georgia

The major purpose of PET scans is to detect and monitor cancer, to detect metastases, and to monitor treatment response.

PET (positron emission tomography) scans use radiopharmaceuticals to create 3D images of your organs and tissues. During a PET scan you may lie on a table that slides through the PET machine. A small amount of radioactive glucose (sugar) is injected into the vein, and a scanner makes a picture of where the glucose is being used in the body. Cancer cells show up brighter in the picture because they take up more glucose than do normal cells.
