The PET/CT scan, which is offered exclusively and for the first time in the Republic of Cyprus, is a combination of Computerized Tomography (CT) Scan and Positron Emission Tomography (PET), which enables us to receive high quality and accurate images.
PET/CT is an imaging technic that combines the anatomical information coming from computed tomography (CT) with the metabolic activity of the imaged tissues and organs coming from positron emission tomography (PET). This nuclear medicine imaging method applies to Oncology, Cardiology and Neurology.
Different radiopharmaceuticals can be used according to the clinical question for each patient. Radiopharmaceuticals are substances able to be bound to specific organs or other tissues and molecules and they are used in nuclear medicine as radiotracers for the imaging and therapy of the patients.
