Whereas other imaging tests, such as X-ray, CT, and MRI, reveal structural changes in the body, PET is used to reveal chemical and physiological changes. A PET scan is similar to a CT scan; however, PET scan can detect live cancer tissue. Prior to a PET scan, the patient receives an injection of a substance into a vein that contains a type of sugar attached to a radioactive isotope. The cancer cells “take up” the sugar and attached isotope. These areas of disease will show up as bright spots on the PET scan. For this reason, PET scans are useful both for detecting cancer and for seeing if the cancer has spread.

A whole-body PET-CT scan can be done an outpatient procedure and takes maximum one hour. The result of the imaging is provided by our radiologists in the same day with the investigation.

CT Guided Biopsy is a procedure performed by an interventional radiologist to obtain a small malignant tissue sample through a fine needle. CT scan is used to guide the needle into the lesion (under a local anesthetic) in the safest possible manner.  The procedure can be done an outpatient procedure and takes maximum 15 minutes. The cancer tissue is used for cytological, histological and molecular testing.
