  • Cancer Screening

    The PET/CT scanner is revolutionizing the detection and treatment of cancer by combining body anatomy and function into one precise image — essential for the identification of cancerous cells. A complete scan of the entire body is performed to gather images that will highlight virtually any cancer activity. It is able to reveal whether cells are benign or cancerous in a single step, without invasive biopsies.

    Persons with a strong family history of cancer should consider having this exam; those with a personal history of cancer may benefit by having this exam once every 3-5 years in order to detect any recurrence as early as possible.

    Why it’s important

    As great strides have been made in cancer treatment, one thing remains unchanged — the sooner cancer is detected, the more effectively it can be treated and the chances of survival are increased dramatically. This is essential for anyone who has a personal or family history of cancer, or is at high risk for cancer. Anyone who has had cancer, or has a friend or family member with the disease, knows there is always a high risk of the cancer returning. Monitoring recovery and remission is essential — and PET/CT helps by making it easy and accurate.
