what are the uses of PET scan?

PET scan is typically used for the assessment and analysis of metabolic and biochemical properties of tissues or an organ. Your doctor may recommend a PET scan for the evaluation, diagnosis and monitoring of the following: 

  • Cancer or its Metastases.
  • Cancer staging.
  • To monitor efficacy of cancer treatmentor to assess the prognosis in cancer patients.

how much time it takes during the procedure of PET scan?

IT takes approximately 2 hours.

Up to 60 minutes are required to begin the scanning procedure after giving an intravenous radioactive agent. Whereas the actual process of PET scan takes approx. 30-40 minutes. However, it may last longer depending upon the severity of your illness and associated co-morbid conditions.

what are the risks/side effects of PET scan?

PET scan is a safe procedure.

The radioactivity in the radioactive drug is very low; also it doesn’t stay for longtime in your body. Drinking water can flush the radioactive agent faster from your body. 

However, some risks/side effects about PET scan are as following: 

  • Allergic reactionsto the radiotracer or contrast agent, although rare but can happen in some individuals. However, these allergic reactions are usually mild. 
  • Diabetic patientshave low levels of insulin (help in transport of glucose across cells). Insulin deficiency may lead to low absorption of FDG (fluorodeoxyglucose) which may alter test results. So, inform your doctor before test. 
  • Pregnant and breastfeeding mothers should avoid certain medications and test for the safety of baby. Ask your doctor before undergoing PET scan.
