When should a PET/CT examination be carried out?

HELIOS Hospital Group

The examination is particularly suitable for the early detection and assessment of treatability of lung tumours. In the case of an unfavourable diagnosis unnecessary operations can thereby be avoided and other therapeutic approaches can be chosen. PET/CT is also suitable for numerous other tumour diseases and can be applied to the assessment of primary tumours, lymph node status and distant metastasis as well as diagnosing recurrence, therapy monitoring and planning for targeted radiation therapy.
