At Cary PET-CT, Wake Radiology’s technologists and radiologists conduct noninvasive PET scans to help detect and diagnosis disease. Scans normally take two hours and are conducted in a comfortable setting. PET, or positron emission tomography, is a form of nuclear medicine imaging. When you visit our Cary imaging center for a PET-CT scan, you will receive a small amount of radiotracer, which is injected into your vein then you rest quietly for a period of time before scanning can begin. Wake Radiology’s technologists and radiologist use PET-CT for the brain & body to diagnose cancer, lung nodules and many other body abnormalities.
