About the PET/CT Scan Test

The PET/CT Scan test involves 2 aspects. The PET scan component marks most cancer cells in the body and CT component is used for anatomical localisation of abnormal cancer cells.

      • PET Scan: During the test, a small dosage of 18F-FDG (18F-Fluoro Deoxy Glucose) is injected to the patient. This molecule is a isotope which is actively uptaken by most active cancer cells in the body. The uptake of FDG is measured by the PET scan component of PET/CT scan, to highlight and mark most cancers.
      • CT Scan: A diagnostic quality CT scan is performed along with the PET scan. Prior to scan, all patients are given oral contrast (positive / negative) to drink. During the scan, intravenous contrast is injected (unless creatinine is high / history of prior allergy / referring physician’s discretion).
      • Time: Entire procedure takes around 3-4 hours. Scanning time per se is approximately 30-45 mins depending upon the clinical conditions.

Pre-Test Preparation

      • Fasting: 4-6 hours of fasting is required. Overnight fasting is preferred. During the period of fasting only plain water is allowed.
      • Ongoing Medication: Kindly inform us about any ongoing medications for you may require a special preparation for your examination.
      • Advise for Diabetics: Diabetic patients should have light breakfast at 6:00 am on the day of test, and must take the advised prescription. It is important not to miss the diabetic medication in the morning of the test date. Please inform us about your diabetic prescription for us to plan the needful for your test.
      • Creatinine And Urea Tests: It is mandatory to have blood test levels for serum creatinine checked before the examination. Incase a high value of creatinine, please approach us to connect with you with our doctor, for further advice
      • Clinical Records: While coming for PET scan please carry all your relevant medical records for reference (Doctor’s prescription, previous CT/MRI films along with reports, treatment summary, discharge papers, surgery details, biopsy / post surgery histopathology reports etc). Submission of such clinical records helps doctors to work-up and identify your case-specific diagnostic detailing.
      • Old Records: If a prior PET scan has been performed, kindly do not forget to bring DICOM version in a CD and reports. Without CD of the previous PET scan, comparison for measuring improvement or deterioration of cancer will not be possible.
