Prostate Cancer PET/CT


Positron emission tomography (PET) scans produce pictures of the body's metabolic functions, such as where glucose is concentrated in cancerous tumors. Computed tomography (CT) scans use X-rays to create images of the body's anatomical structures. PET/CT scans combine PET with CT to show both metabolic functions and anatomical structures. PET/CT is the best imaging technology for detecting cancer recurrence.
