Positron Emission Tomography (PET)

General

Positron Emission Tomography (PET) is a nuclear medical examination method. PET is a well-documented, well-established and very useful tool in oncological imaging.

Indications

Oncological imaging for:

  • Staging the primary diagnosis and recurrence
  • Evaluating the effect of aggressive chemotherapy treatment
  • Evaluating the effect of completed treatment, including differentiating scar tissue from viable residue tissue
  • Suspicion of recurrence (for example, increased level of tumor marker in the blood)

Goal

  • To provide concrete diagnostic information that will provide a basis for the choice of the best possible treatment.
