What is a PET scan?

A positron emission tomography (PET) scan is a diagnostic imaging test used to examine the inner workings of a patient’s organs and tissues. Before a PET scan, the patient is given a radioactive tracer. This tracer travels through the body and gathers in areas with high levels of chemical activity. This gives your physician a unique view of the function of your organs. A PET scan can be used to detect and evaluate certain types of cancer and brain disorders, as well as point out areas of decreased blood flow to the heart.
