– Clinical Data

Oncology– In oncology, PET permits a physician to accurately image many organs of the body with a single scan in order to detect malignancy. PET has demonstrated usefulness in cost-effective whole-body metastatic surveys, avoiding biopsies.

Neurology– In neurology, PET provides information for assessing various neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, Parkinson’s disease, and Huntington’s disease. Additionally, it localizes epileptic foci for qualifying and identifying the site requiring surgical intervention.

Cardiology – In cardiology, PET enables physicians to screen for coronary artery disease, to assess flow rates and flow reserve and to distinguish viable from nonviable myocardium for bypass and transplant candidates.
