It’s possible to discover a cancer which is difficult to find, and has wider field to diagnosis
PET・RI center started in April 2004.
Our hospital has two PET-CTs (it's a combined device of PET and CT), and one SPECT-CT.
PET-CT is mainly used to find cancer, SPECT-CT is to examine cerebral blood flow, cardiac disease, autonomic disturbance, and bone disease etc.
FDG-PET examination uses FDG that is glucose combined with a slight amount of radioactive substance. Cancer uses glucose as energy and FDG-PET examination uses its nature, and it enable to know where the cancer is.
FDG-PET examination is not effective when a cancer is very small, or when the density of cancer cell is low.
It also has some weak areas of the body to examine. (ex, brain, urinary tract、 stomach, etc.)
As advantages of FDG-PET examination, damage to the body is small, it can examine wide range of the body and it is possible to examine a cancer that is difficult to find by CT.
PET-CT makes it possible to diagnose more accurately by using both CT image and FDG-PET image. Many clinical cases evidence its utility.
