PET/CT scans offered by InHealth
InHealth centres use a PET/CT scan, which combines a CT scan and a PET scan into one scan. The scan
takes CT pictures of the structures of the body. At the same time, a
mildly radioactive drug shows up areas of the body where the cells are
more active than normal. The scanner combines both of these types of
information. This allows the clinician to see any changes in the
activity of cells and know exactly where the changes are happening.
Arranging a PET/CT scan with InHealth
