PET CT SCAN
his is the era of Fusion imaging i.e fusing the functional information with the anatomical images. The functional information gives us the metabolic status of the particular organ whereas anatomical images provides us with the structural/morphological changes
Here at SRMS FIMC, we have got one of the most advanced fusion imaging modality in the form of Biograph mCT Flow PET-CT scanner which for the first time in this part of world, can provide us the most detailed information about any functional abnormality in the human body; basically in oncology but not limited to; with some diseases of neurology and cardiac origin as well.Read More
Similar to PET, single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) uses radioactive tracers and a scanner to record data that a computer constructs into two- or three-dimensional images. The tracer is what allows doctors to see how blood flows to tissues and organs & provide them with functional information of that particular organ which can be read together with other anatomical imaging information to manage the treatment of the patients in a better way.
A small amount of a radioactive drug is injected into a vein and a scanner is used to make detailed images of areas inside the body where the radioactive material is taken up by the cells. SPECT can give information about blood flow to tissues and chemical reactions (metabolism) in the body.Read More
