PET-CT Scan with Triple Phase CT Abdomen (FDG)

The PET CT Scan with Triple Phase Abdomen combines a Whole Body PET-CT Scan with a specialized Triple Phase Evaluation focused on the Upper Abdomen. PET-CT, a nuclear medicine imaging test, is frequently employed for the detection of various cancers, heart diseases, neurological conditions, infections, and Pyrexia of Unknown Origin (PUO). The procedure involves the injection of radioactive glucose, which is then absorbed by fasting-state tissues in the body. The PET scanner detects activity within the body, providing insights into the functioning of tissues and organs. This test is primarily utilized for cancer detection, staging, and assessing treatment responses in the body.
IMPORTANT: Bring all medical records to aid in comprehensive report detailing and correlation. Due to the procurement of a special time-sensitive FDG dose, punctuality is crucial for your appointment. The test may not be feasible if you are late, and cancellation charges apply for no-shows, late-shows, or cancellations.

    Fasting for 4-6 hours is required, with overnight fasting preferred. During fasting, only plain water is allowed. Diabetic patients should have a light breakfast at 6 am on the test day, following the prescribed medication. It's crucial not to miss diabetic medication on the morning of the test, and informing us about your diabetic history helps us plan accordingly. Please bring your old report/CD. Additionally, a 4-6 hour fasting period is mandatory. For diabetic patients, inform us at the time of booking the PET CT Scan FDG for guidance. The test can only proceed if blood sugar is below 150 mg/dL at the time of testing. If blood sugar levels are not under control, plan your appointment after stabilizing levels with your treating physician. Avoid excessive sugar/starch/alcohol the night before the test. For optimal results, refrain from smoking for at least 3 days before the test. Bring all medical records to aid in comprehensive report detailing and correlation.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a PET-CT Scan?

A PET-CT Scan, or positron emission tomography-computed tomography, is a powerful imaging technique that provides detailed information about how tissues and organs function. It produces 3-dimensional images of the inside of the body, helping diagnose various illnesses, injuries, and disorders.

When is a PET-CT Scan ordered?

PET scans are often ordered when your doctor suspects cancer or believes that cancer may have spread. It is also used to assess damage after a heart attack or stroke and monitor responses to neurological, cardiovascular, or cancer treatments.

How is a PET-CT Scan conducted?
During a PET-CT Scan, a radioactive form of glucose, known as a radiotracer, is injected into the vein. This radiotracer is absorbed by the body, and then a PET scan and CT scan are performed to create a comprehensive picture of what is happening inside.
How long does a PET-CT Scan take?
The entire process is generally completed within a few hours. Patients can leave the PET center immediately, unless they feel tired after fasting. Drinking plenty of water throughout the day is important to flush out the radioactive chemical from the body.
Are there any risks associated with a PET-CT Scan?
A PET scan is a painless imaging test with few risks. Since it involves a radiotracer, there is a risk of radiation exposure. Women should inform the radiologist if they are breastfeeding or pregnant. Our team of doctors will review and report your study within 24-48 working hours due to the detailed nature of the investigation.
