PET CT brain scan combines the Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scan and Computerized Tomography (CT) scan test together to scan the brain for disorders like Alzheimer’s disease, epilepsy, depression, Parkinson’s disease and in cases of head trauma. The PET scans are useful for detecting metabolic changes that occur at the cellular level in an organ or tissue. PET Scan uses radioactive tracers which are either swallowed, inhaled or injected into the body before the test. The CT scan uses special X-ray machine to create pictures of the body part. The images from the two scans are combined through computer to create a three-dimensional image, which provides more accurate and precise information.
