FAQs for PET CT Scan

Q.

How is PET CT scan performed?

A.

PET Scan involves the use of a small amount of radioactive tracer. These tracers are either swallowed, inhaled, or injected into the view depending on the part of the body to be examined. Certain organs and tissues observe the tracer. The tracer travels through the blood and collects in organs and tissues. This helps the radiologist to clearly see the areas. The tracer is provided to the patient prior one hour to the test. During the span of one hour, it will be absorbed by the body. Then the radiographer will ask the patient to lie down on the narrow table that slides into the large tunnel-shaped scanner. The radiographer leaves the room. They can see you on the TV screen in the next room. This scan detects signals from the tracer. The couch slowly slides backward and forwards through the scanner. The computer changes the signals into 3D pictures. The images displayed on the monitor can help the healthcare provider. During the scan, the patient must lie still. Movement of the patient’s body can blur images and can hamper the results. The scan is painless but it can cause mild uncomfortableness because one has to stay still.

Q.

How to prepare for PET scan?

A.

HealthFinder helps the patient in preparing for the PET Scan in Jalandhar. For PET Scans, the patient must stop eating for about 4 to 6 hours prior to the scan. The patient will be instructed to not do any strenuous exercise for about 24 hours before the scan. The patient must tell the diagnostic centre if they cannot resist from eating due to diabetes. The patient must wear a hospital gown. Women must inform the doctor if they are or may be pregnant. The doctor must be informed about the medications the patient is consuming. List out all the allergies, illnesses, and medical problems at PET Scan centre in Jalandhar to the radiographers to see the safety of the test. For PET Scans, diabetic patients will receive different instructions. The patient will not be allowed to carry metal objects like jewelry, eyeglasses, dentures, hairpin as it can affect the CT images. Hearing aids and removable dental objects will also be instructed to be removed. Refrain from eating as it can alter the distribution of PET tracer in the body and can lead to a suboptimal scan. The liquid which contains sugar or calories must not be consumed before the scan. Drinking enough water is encouraged before the scan.

Q.

What happens after PET Scan?

A.

After the PET scan, the radiographer will remove the cannula from the arm. You can eat and drink normally. The radiation in the tracer is very little. Drinking plenty of water after the scanning will help in flushing the radiotracer out of the body. The radioactive tracer gives a very small level of radiation that goes away very quickly.

Q.

What is the possible risk of PET scan?

A.

HealthFinder has all the diagnostic labs that have advanced and safe technology for the patient. The diagnostic centre associated with us decreases the risk of PET scans. This scan is safe for all people.

  • Patient may experience small bruising around the area where the needle is put in.
  • There is no allergic reaction to radioactive tracer. This can cause weakness, sweating, and difficulty in breathing.
  • Q.

    Who interprets the results and how do I get them?
