Preparing for CT and PET/CT Scans
If you are scheduled to receive diagnostic imaging with Rocky Mountain Cancer Centers find out what you need to do prior to your appointment and how you can prepare for your appointment.
Computed Tomography (CT) scan
This scan uses a computer and x-rays to provide cross-sectional images (often called slices) of body tissues and organs. These images can show the presence of a tumor, its extent and if it has spread beyond the local site.
This advanced imaging technology combines Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and computed tomography (CT). The resulting detailed three dimensional imaging helps physicians detect solid cancer tumors even in their earliest stages, making PET/CT one of the most accurate diagnostic scans available.
We offer the following PET scans:
- FDG – F18 Fluorodeoxyglucose
- NETSPOT® – Ga68 Dotatate
- Detectnet® – Cu64 Dotatate
- PET bone – F18 Sodium Fluoride
- Axumin® – F18 Fluciclovine
PYLARIFY® – F18 PSMA
Accredited Program, Experienced Staff
Rocky Mountain Cancer Centers is accredited by the American College of Radiology (ACR) for both PET and CT. Our certified technologists performing the scans have extensive healthcare experience. The scans are read and interpreted by a specially trained radiologist, outside of RMCC, who then provides a detailed written report to our oncologist. Our doctors use these reports in disease staging and treatment planning.
