Lake, Smit & Partners | PET CT

Positron Emission Tomography/Computed Tomography or better known as PET/CT, is a form of Nuclear Medicine Imaging also known as a Radio Isotope. This uses small amounts of radio-active pharmaceuticals to image the body and help diagnose or treat a variety of diseases. The procedure determines the cause of the medical problem based on the function of the organ, tissue or bone. Without Nuclear Medicine Imaging this information may not be available, the alternative being surgery or more expensive and invasive diagnostic tests. X-Rays and CT scans show how your body looks whereas Nuclear Medicine shows how your body works.
Here is a video illustrating how the procedure is undertaken at our Gateway venue.
