Providence Imaging Center's PET-CT combines two scanning technologies - PET and CT - into one machine, providing clinicians with highly defined, 3-D images of the human body in one system. The result is excellent image quality and spatial resolution, improved tumor detection and localization, precise disease staging, better monitoring of cancer recurrences, shorter investigation time, and greater patient comfort and convenience.
Our PET-CT technologists are dedicated to securing the best images while attending to patients' comfort and concerns. They explain the process before the exam begins and continue communicating with patients throughout the scanning process. Because the PET and CT scans are acquired during the same exam, while the patient is in the same position on the table, PIC PET-CT images provide the most accurate correlation between the metabolism of the body's tissues and its structures.
