PET scan uses a camera along with radioactive tracers injected intravenously (IV) to obtain images of the human body’s function and reveal information of health and disease. The scanner records signals that the tracer emits as it journeys through the body and is collected by targeted organs. A computer then interprets the signals into actual images, which then show biological maps of normal organ function and failure of an organ system. For more information on PET/CT scans, please contact Nemaha County Hospital.
