Positron Emission Tomography and Computed Tomography (PET/CT) images can provide important information about many conditions affecting the heart, brain, and other organs, which will help the doctor develop an appropriate treatment plan. PET/CT images are different than those obtained with conventional X-ray, CT, Ultrasound or MRI. PET shows the function of the body and organs or how they work. CT shows the structures of the body or how the organs look. In other words, unlike most other imaging techniques, PET/CT provides information about the structure and function of the organs.
Physicians and patients interested in scheduling a PET/CT exam must contact Via Christi Hospital Pittsburg at (620) 231-6100.
