What is a PET Scan?
Positron Emission Tomography scan or PET scan is the latest and the most advanced technology which provides more details apart from just identifying the tumor or other elements depending on the purpose of the PET scan. It also differentiates between cancerous and non-cancerous tumor.

What is a PET CT Scan?
In order to understand PET CT scan clearly, it would be helpful if we get to know about CT scan and PET scan.
CT Scan: The scan takes series of X-rays from all angles and with the help of the computer it makes cross-sectional images of bones, blood vessels, tissues, and organs. Compared to other imaging tests CT scan provides detailed images. CT scan provides anatomic information i.e. the exact structure of the organs or tissues.
PET Scan: The scan provides metabolic information. It gives detailed information as to how the tissues, cells or organs function.
While PET scan is so advanced in helping the doctors to find the most accurate treatment, it lacks in providing the anatomic information that is provided by the CT scan. PET scan and CT scan was made into one scan i.e. PET CT scan, to overcome this disadvantage and to improve the accuracy of the test results.
Why is PET CT scan prescribed?
The full potential of PET CT scan is still being researched and it is possible that major technological improvements will take place with regards to accuracy, uses and much more. PET CT scan is mainly used for cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, heart disease and epilepsy.
Cancer: PET CT scan is very helpful in identifying the areas where cancer has spread, differentiating between cancerous and non-cancerous cells, identifying tumor much earlier than other imaging tests or biopsies and highly efficient in tracking the progress of treatment and determining the right kind of treatment.
Alzheimer’s disease: In the case of Alzheimer’s disease, the affected brain cells use the glucose in the radiotracer slowly. PET scans provide information for the diagnosis by measuring the intake of glucose by these brain cells.
Heart disease: The scan is also helpful to the doctors to analyze heart disease. The scan shows the parts of the heart that has been scarred or damaged and other problems in the functioning of the heart.
Epilepsy: For patients with epilepsy the scan shows the exact parts of the brain that are affected by epilepsy and helps in determining the most suitable treatment.

How does a PET CT scan work?
A radioactive tracer with glucose is given to the patient orally or inserted by enema or through injection depending upon the necessity.
- The tracer is taken orally if the stomach is being scanned.
- If liver, urinary tract, gallbladder or blood vessels are to be scanned then the tracer will be injected.
- To visualize the intestines the contrast material is inserted by enema.
The glucose containing radioactive tracer is given before the test and the patient is sent under the scanner after an hour. This tracer accumulates in different locations and shows up as hot spots and cold spots in the result.
When a group of cells needs more energy the scan shows it as hot spots and in areas where less energy is required it is seen as a cold spot. The cancer cells are the ones with high activity and they need more energy and these cells need more glucose.
So, the radioactive tracer with glucose accumulate in this area and highlight the cancerous cells as hot spots.
