Positron emission tomography (PET) is a sophisticated medical imaging technique. It uses a radioactive tracer to pinpoint differences in tissues on the molecular level. PET scans can detect differences in body functions, such as blood flow, use of...
A positron emission tomography (PET) scan is an imaging test that allows doctors to check for disease in the body. The scan uses radioactive tracers in a special dye. These tracers are injected into an arm vein and absorbed by organs and tissues. ...
A magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan is a noninvasive test that uses magnets and radio waves to create images of the inside of your body. It allows doctors to see details of your organs and tissues without having to make any incisions. Accordin...
A computerized tomography scan (CT or CAT scan) is a series of cross-sectional X-ray images of your body. CT scans are used to examine your bones and soft tissues for damage or abnormalities. Often, these images can be combined to create a 3D pict...
