PET-MRI Scan

  • What is PET-MRI Scan?

    PET/MRI is a new medical imaging device that performs Positron-Emission Tomography (PET) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Scans at the same time. PET is a medical imaging examination that provides information on how an organ in your body is working. MRI uses a magnetic field and radio waves to provide images of any part of the body from any angle.

    The simultaneous use of PET and MRI provides more detailed and enhanced imaging than either procedure alone. This new hybrid imaging technology aims to provide information on the causes, effects and development of various diseases.

  • PET/MRI has the potential to detect and diagnose certain complex malignancies, including cancers of the neck, pelvis, and neck, with high level of accuracy and confidence. This technique allows doctors to provide better disease and treatment planning, therefore improving your care. PET/MRI also allows the doctor to monitor how certain drugs are travelling in your body to determine whether they are working. PET/MRI also allows researchers to monitor stem cells (undifferentiated biological cells) as they are maturing and differentiating into different body tissues.
