How PET-CT Detect Cancer

October 21, 2020, 1:00 pm

1:30 pm

In this presentation, you’ll meet Nuclear Medicine Technologist Erika Padilla-Morales, CNMT, and others involved in Metabolic Imaging at UCSF. Participants will learn about Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and Computed Tomography (CT) and how technologies are used to detect cancer and help patients. PET-CT increases diagnostic accuracy and specificity allowing information from two different studies to be correlated and interpreted on one image. Fusing PET and CT images results in more comprehensive anatomic and metabolic visualization of disease sites throughout body.
