PET / CT is a method to diagnose the types of tumor that cannot be detected using other imaging tools, such as ultrasound, X-ray, CT and MRI.

PET / CT allows you to assess the extent of the patient’s tumor lesion and correctly defines the stage of the disease. Knowing how far the malignant cells are spread is extremely important in order to determine the type of the treatment.
