A PET-CT is a nuclear medicine imaging test used commonly to detect a range of cancers, heart diseases, neurological conditions, infections and PUO (Pyrexia of Unknown Origin). Radioactive glucose is injected and then taken up by tissues, which are in fasting state in your body. Activity within your body is then detected by the PET scanner which shows how tissue and organs are working. This test is most commonly used for Detection, Staging and Treatment Response for the Cancer in the body.
