PET/CT is a non-invasive test that integrates and combines Positron Emission Tomography (PET) which pinpoints the location of abnormal metabolic activity within the body, and Computer Aided Tomography (CT) which depicts the anatomy where the changes are taking place.
PET/CT at Windsong Radiology Group can help our physicians accurately diagnose many diseases at earlier stages when treatment is more likely to be effective. Additionally, PET/CT imaging may help to accurately and precisely localize disease to aid in planning the right treatment for each patient, thus reducing unnecessary procedures such as biopsies and further testing, which can save valuable time. For patients undergoing treatment, a PET/CT scan can provide an assessment of how each person is also responding to treatment early on in the treatment regimen.
Windsong Radiology Group was the first to bring PET/CT to Buffalo and Western New York. Since then, Windsong has collaborated with the top medical and radiation oncologists in Western New York as well as those in the most prestigious academic institutions to always have the cutting edge protocols and tracers that will give your doctor the answers you are seeking.
