PET/CT scans offered by InHealth
InHealth offers a PET/CT scan which combines a CT scan and
PET scan into one and provides a doctor with a more detailed image of the
structures of your body. A PET scan uses a tiny amount of an injected
radioactive drug that displays which cells are more active than normal. This
allows the doctor to see the changes of the activities in the cell and pinpoint
exactly where the changes are happening.
Patients often wonder about the safety of their PET/CT scan.
PET/CT scans are very safe and any radiation that you are exposed to is small.
However, you will only be referred to have a PET/CT scan when your doctor
believes that the benefit of you being exposed to find out more about your
condition outweighs the risk of you being exposed to the radiation.

you will be sent your report. You can then call your doctor to find out if they
received your results before making an appointment. InHealth will contact you

who performs your PET/CT scan will not be able to give you your results on the
