PET/CT Description:


In the MedWOW’s catalog, PET/CT is described as follows:
Computed Tomography Positron Emission Tomography (PET/CT) scanning systems generate PET and CT images of a patient in a single study.
The above ads list companies that sell and / or service PET/CT.

PET/CT may also be referred to as:


Camera, Positron | Computed Tomography-Positron Emission Tomography Combined System | Computerized Tomograph | CT Scanner, Computed Tomography-Positron Emission Tomography | Hybrid Imaging System, CT PET | PET CT | PET Scanner | PET-CT | Positron Emission Tomography (PET) System | Positron Emission Tomography (PET) Unit | Positron Emission Tomography System | Scanner, ECT | Scanner, Isotope | Scanner, PET | Scanner, Positron Emission Tomography | Scanner, Positron Emission Tomography (PET) | Scanning System, Computed Tomography, Positron Emission Tomography

Tips for buying PET/CT


  • Facilities adding a Positron Emission Tomography (PET) facility should expect extensive planning and construction, special permits, and serious training for technical staff.
  • High detector performance is crucial for facilities wishing to conduct PET scans using isotopes with very short half-lives.
  • Scatter fraction must also be considered. A higher scatter fraction indicates reduced image quality.
  • The sensitivity of a CT PET scanner is used as a guide to the patient throughput; the higher the sensitivity, the shorter the exam time is.
  • Patient throughput varies among PET scanners. It is impossible to specify patient throughput, which depends on the types of exams being performed and the size of the patient.
  • All CT PET scanners should provide adequate image quality.
  • Before deciding on a specific system configuration when buying a PET scanner, buyers should consider the number and types of PET studies to be performed.
