Medical imaging technology continues to evolve. Today's PET/CT scanners incorporate the best elements of computed tomography (CT) and the latest techniques for metabolic analysis, Positron Emission Tomography (PET) into a single unit. The process employs molecular F-18 deoxyglucose (FDG) to determine the metabolic activity of tumor cells as FDG is distributed throughout the body and accumulates in the areas of highest molecular activity before they are visible at the anatomic level. The combined anatomical and metabolic images greatly assist radiologists and oncologists in selecting the best treatment for each patient.
