PET-CT imaging service
Our PET-CT imaging service is based at the InHealth Nottingham PET-CT Centre, at City Hospital, near to the Hucknall Road Gate 1 entrance.
A PET-CT scan is two scans in one: a PET and a CT scan.
PET scans produce detailed 3-dimensional images of the inside of the body. It can show how well certain parts of your body are working, rather than simply showing what they look like.
PET scans are particularly helpful for investigating confirmed cases of cancer to determine how far the cancer has spread and how well it's responding to treatment.
They can also help diagnose some conditions that affect the normal workings of the brain, such as dementia.
PET scans are often combined with CT scans to produce even more detailed images. This is known as a PET-CT scan.
CT scans use X-rays and a computer to create detailed images of the inside of the body. CT scans are sometimes referred to as CAT scans or computed tomography scans.
PET-CT imaging services are available for oncology, neurology, and endocrinology patients.
