Gibson Area Hospital now offers PET/CT service each Saturday to enhance local cancer care. The PET/CT scan combines the functional information from a Positron Emission Tomography (PET) exam with anatomical information from a Computed Tomography (CT) exam into one single exam.
Because timely treatment is important, the availability of Saturday appointments makes this service a convenient option for patients and caregivers. The exam also offers smaller lesion detectability, fast scan times, low radiation doses for patients, and prompt, expert interpretation results to help your doctor find the right cancer treatment sooner.
