PET scans are commonly used in the following areas:

Cancer : PET scans are extensively used in oncology to detect and assess cancer. They can help identify the presence and location of tumors, evaluate the stage of cancer, determine if it has spread to other body parts (metastasis), and monitor whether the treatment is working or not. The PET scans aid in the development of treatment plans. They are also employed to monitor the ongoing treatment and detect cancer recurrence.

Neurological Disorders :  DOPA Brain PET scan helps diagnose and study various neurological conditions. It assists in differentiating between neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, and other forms of dementia. and many other types of neurological disorders. They can also be used to evaluate epilepsy/ seizures, brain tumors as well as other brain disorders.

Heart Conditions :  Cardiac PET scan is used to assess the blood flow to the heart. It reveals the areas in the heart with decreased blood flow. It helps determine areas of damaged or scarred heart tissues and evaluate the overall functioning of the heart. It is particularly useful in diagnosing coronary artery disease and evaluating myocardial viability after a heart attack.

Brain Disorders : Brain PET Scans can provide valuable information about the functions of the brain and are used to diagnose and study the conditions such as schizophrenia, depression, bipolar disorder, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

Infectious Diseases : Whole Body PET scans can be used to detect and monitor infections, particularly in cases where conventional imaging techniques may not be sufficient. They can help identify the extent of infection and evaluate the response to treatment.

A positron emission tomography (PET) scan is a medical imaging technique that uses a radioactive tracer to visualize and detect various diseases including cancer. It is particularly useful in identifying areas of increased metabolic activity, which is often characteristic of cancerous cells. While PET Scans can be used to diagnose and stage several types of cancer, some of the most common ones include:

  • Brain
  • Breast
  • Cervical
  • Colorectal
  • Esophageal
  • Head and neck
  • Lung
  • Lymphatic system
  • Pancreatic
  • Prostate
  • Thyroid
  • Ovarian

Brain Cancer : PET scan is used in brain cancer cases to evaluate the presence and extent of the cancer.

Lung Cancer : PET scans can help determine the extent of lung cancer by showing the size, location, and spread of the tumor.

Breast Cancer : PET Scans may be used in breast cancer cases to evaluate the extent of the disease particularly to determine if the cancer has spread to other areas of the body.

Colorectal Cancer : PET scans can help stage colorectal cancer and determine if it has metastasized(spread) to other organs or lymph nodes.

Lymphoma : PET scans are frequently used in lymphoma cases to detect the presence and location of cancerous lymph nodes or to assess the response to treatment.

Prostate Cancer : PET scans aid in detecting cancer in prostate cancer, it's staging, and its spread.

Melanoma : PET scans can help identify the spread of melanoma to other parts of the body, such as lymph nodes or distant organs.

Head and Neck Cancers : PET scans are used to evaluate the extent of head and neck cancers, including those affecting the oral cavity, throat, or larynx.

Esophageal Cancer : PET scans can assess the stage of esophageal cancer and determine if it has spread beyond the esophagus.

Pancreatic Cancer : PET scans can aid in staging pancreatic cancer and identify if it has spread to nearby structures or distant organs.

Ovarian Cancer : PET scans may be used in ovarian cancer cases to evaluate the extent of diseases and detect any potential metastasis.

During the PET scan, a very small amount of radioactive material, known as a radioactive tracer is injected into the bloodstream of the patient. The tracer emits positrons, which collide with electrons in the body, releasing gamma rays. The PET scanner detects these gamma rays and creates detailed images that highlight areas with high metabolic activities, indicative of cancerous cells. These images help doctors identify and locate potential cancerous areas.

While positron emission tomography (PET scans) is highly effective in detecting various types of cancer. But some small or slow-growing cancers may not exhibit metabolic activities and may remain undetected on PET scans.  So, it can be said that PET scans can’t show all cancers. Additionally, PET scans are not able to distinguish between benign or malignant tumors, which may require merger or co-registration with CT or MRI for further testing for definitive diagnosis.

Undergoing a PET scan is generally a painless procedure. The tracer is injected intravenously, and patients may experience a mild sensation or temporary discomfort at the injection site.  The actual scanning process is non-invasive and does not cause any pain. However, some individuals may feel claustrophobic during the scan due to the requirement of lying still in a confined space.  So, if you have concerns, it is best to talk to your healthcare provider.

The PET scan price can vary depending on various factors, including the geographical location, the reputation of the diagnostic center, the technology used by the diagnostic center for scanning as well as insurance coverage. Compared to other scans such as CT scan and MRI scan, PET scan tends to be more expensive. In Delhi, the cost of a PET scan generally starts at INR 23900. But at Ganesh Diagnostic and Imaging Centre, you can get the benefits of a 50% discount on all PET scans.

PET scans and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) serve different purposes and have unique advantages. While PET scans are useful in detecting metabolic activity and evaluating cancer, MRIs provide detailed anatomical images that help assess the structure and function of organs and tissues. In some cases, combining the information from both PET and MRI scans can provide a more comprehensive evaluation of certain cancers.

PET scans are a valuable tool in diagnosing and monitoring cancer. They provide important information to healthcare professionals, allowing them to make informed decisions about treatment plans. However, like any medical procedure, PET scans have limitations and are not the sole determinant

A very common question that comes into the mind of everyone when undergoing a PET scan is the time duration of the procedure of PET scan for the cancer problem. On overage, a PET scan for a cancer problem takes around 2 hours to complete.

The time frame of 2 hours includes various steps:

  • Preparation
  • Administration of radioactive tracer
  • Time for the tracer to distribute throughout the body
  • Scanning

The scanning procedure takes around 20 minutes to 30 minutes. While the remaining time is spent on the pre-procedure preparation and waiting time for the tracer to circulate throughout the body.

The extended time duration of 2 hours for a PET scan is attributed to various factors. To perform the PET Scan, a radioactive tracer that is a mildly radioactive substance is given to you. It takes around 60 minutes to circulate throughout the body and accumulate in the areas of interest. During the process of tracer uptake, you need to sit quietly with limited movements. Once the tracer absorbs into the body properly, the scanning procedure starts and the PET scanner captures detailed images of cellular activity. The process of scanning takes around 20-30 minutes. Once the scanning process is done, the technologist asks you to wait for some time to ensure that the images are clear.

Once the PET scan procedure completes, the technologist will ask you to wait for some time to ensure the images obtained during the scan are precise. If the images are clear, then you will be asked to go and continue your normal activities straight away. You will be instructed on the precautions that you need to take such as maintaining a distance from the pregnant women and kids for a few hours and drinking a lot of water to flush the radioactive tracer out of your body.

On the other hand, the Radiologist will analyze your images to evaluate the presence, location of any abnormal cellular activity. Based on the results, your healthcare provider may suggest further imaging tests or suggest treatment.

After undergoing a PET scan, the main concern is about the exposure to radiation and the impact of radiation on others. While the radioactive tracer used for PET scan emits radiation because it decays fast so the exposure to others is less. So, as a precautionary measure to ensure the safety of others who may be more vulnerable to radiation, you may be advised to avoid close contact for a few hours after the completion of the procedure with infants, pregnant women as well as individuals with compromised immune systems.

After the procedure of a PET scan, generally, it's safe to be near someone as the radiation emitted from the radioactive tracer given during the PET scan procedure diminishes rapidly and poses minimal risk to others. But still, your healthcare provider may give you some instructions that are necessary to follow as a precautionary measure for avoiding close contact with certain individuals such as infants, pregnant women as well as individuals with poor immunity. Adhering to these instructions ensures the well-being of everyone around you.

It is generally safe to be around others after undergoing a PET scan. But in the case of infants/ babies, due to the developing bodies of babies/ infants and potentially increased sensitivity to the radiations emitted from the radioactive tracer injected during the procedure, it is prudent to exercise caution while holding a baby immediately after the scan. It is always advisable to limit holding the baby or holding the baby not more than 30 minutes for at least 4 to 12 hours after the scanning procedure.

PET scans involve the use of radioactive tracers for better clarity of the images. The radioactive tracer emits radiation to obtain detailed images of the internal structure of the body and the functions of the organs. But the exposure to radiation is very low compared to other scans such as X-Ray, CT scans, and MRI Scans. But in the case of prolonged radiation exposure, there is a chance of damage to cells and an increased risk of cancer development. But the benefits of PET scans usually outweigh the associated risks.

The radioactive tracer administered during the PET scan procedure deteriorates rapidly, which means the level of radiation decreases over time. Mostly radioactive tracers have a half-life, they quickly lose potency and the remaining radiations flush out of the body after a few hours ranging from 2 hours to 12 hours. So, it is always advisable for the patients who underwent the PET Scan, to drink a lot of fluids after the test to flush the radioactive tracer out of the body.

After undergoing a PET scan, to promote the well-being of yourself and others who are around you, you may be advised to take certain precautions. The precautions need to be taken to minimize the radiation exposure.

Here are some common precautions to consider after a PET scan:

  • Drink plenty of fluids to stay hydrated and flush out the radioactive tracer from your system.
  • Limit your close contact with pregnant women, infants, young children as well as individuals with weakened immune systems for a few hours after the scanning procedure.
  • Follow the medication and dietary-related instructions given by your doctor
  • Inform your healthcare provider immediately, if you are having an unusual signs or symptoms

A PET Scan is generally a safe, and painless procedure, but it poses few risks.

Here is a list of a few potential risks to consider:

Allergic Reaction to Radioactive Tracer : During the PET scan, a small amount of radioactive tracer is given, although rare some individuals experience allergic reaction to the radioactive tracer. So, inform your healthcare provider if you have a medical history of allergies or adverse effects of medications.

Risks to Pregnant Women : If you are pregnant or suspect you might be, it is essential to inform your healthcare provider before undergoing a PET scan because the radiation can pose risks to the fetus.

Pre-existing health Issues : Individuals with some specific health issues related to the liver or kidney may be at a higher risk of complications related to the radiotracer. It is crucial to disclose your complete medical history to your healthcare provider beforehand.

You may feel dizziness after a PET CT scan because of the use of Iodine based contrast dye. So, on the completion of the scanning procedure, it is advisable to move slowly while getting up from the scanner to avoid lightheadedness and dizziness.

To improve the quality of the scan, the doctor may ask you to follow the instructions such as:

  • Avoid all types of physical activities and strenuous exercises for 24 hours before the scan
  • Avoid all types of sugary products for 24 hours before the scan
  • Avoid both caffeinated and de-caffeinated beverages for 24 hours before the scan
