PET Scanner

Despite the superior performance of PET MPI (Myocardial Perfusion Imaging) in all patient types as a strong prognostic and risk stratification tool, it is still significantly underutilized as a modality, due to the limited number of Cardiac PET/CT programs currently in existence throughout the United States.

This low adoption rate continues to limit access to care and testing for patients who might otherwise benefit from a PET MPI.

In addition to cardiology, PET/CT imaging is an important diagnostic, planning and treatment tool for oncology and neurology. While such procedures are widely used in hospital and academic settings, they remain underutilized in outpatient office settings, with limited access in the rural and community settings.

Specialty Areas

Cardiology Heart icon

Cardiology

PET/CT Myocardial Perfusion Imaging (MPI) is the preferred test when compared to other methods of cardiac assessment due to superior image quality, significantly lower radiation exposure, the ability to identify and quantify risk, and the ability to successfully guide therapy in patients with known or suspected coronary artery disease (CAD). The high sensitivity, specificity, and diagnostic accuracy allows PET MPI to outperform other non-invasive approaches used to evaluate disease, especially in women, obese patients, and those who have previously undergone Coronary Artery Bypass Grafts (CABG). 

In addition to detection and management of CAD, PET/CT has also been demonstrated clinical value in the identification and diagnosis of cardiac inflammation (Cardiac Amyloidosis) and infection (implantable devices and prosthetic valves).

Oncology DNA icon

Oncology

PET/CT imaging has demonstrated superiority when compared to other modalities in the diagnosis and management of original tumors and metastatic disease. PET/CT has a critical role in the identification, staging and treatment selections for various cancer types, and when used appropriately, significantly improves patient care management and outcomes.

PET/CT provides critical clinical guidance in several cancer types including:

  • Lung
  • Lymphoma
  • Colorectal
  • Melanoma
  • Head and neck
  • Breast
  • Prostate
  • Neuroendocrine
Neurology Brain icon

Neurology

PET/CT imaging provides critical evaluation of the cortical and subcortical structures of the brain allowing for noninvasive quantification of cerebral metabolism and has been demonstrated to provide valuable information before any morphological changes become discernible. It has been demonstrated to be a valuable procedure in the identification, diagnosis, and treatment of epilepsy, dementia, and Alzheimer’s disease and continues to be an area of on-going research and development as a tool to improve patient management and outcomes in patients with various neurological disorders.
