Doylestown Health, in conjunction with MIT (Molecular Imaging Technologies) PET, operates a full-time, fixed 16-slice PET/CT scanner. This state-of-the-art equipment allows physicians to more effectively diagnose, stage, and monitor therapy for a variety of cancers and to diagnose multiple neurologic and cardiac diseases.
Using PET/CT to Detect Cancers Earlier
PET/CT interpretations are performed by Doylestown Health's board-certified radiologists. The PET/CT has the ability to combine the anatomic strength of CT with the physiologic changes detected by PET. This can lead to earlier detection of cancers. PET/CT is the most sensitive tool available. Combining two imaging technologies, PET/CT allows oncologists to precisely pinpoint sites of cancer within the body. When this information is used in radiation therapy treatment planning, it enables the sparing of normal tissue.
The Doylestown Health's PET/CT Center located at Doylestown Hospital is a suite of well-appointed rooms specifically designed to provide comfort and convenience for PET/CT patients. The PET/CT center is an accredited facility through the American College of Radiology. Also available are a full range of ancillary services, from expert assistance with insurance claims to complimentary valet parking.
