A Look Inside a PET Scan of the Brain

Last week was brain awareness week and  Medilab Global wants to give you a brief look into what a PET Scan is like and how we can diagnose or spot symptoms in the brain with this type of medical imaging equipment. A PET scan, or positron emission tomography scan uses a tracer to look for damage or injury in the brain. This means that a radioactive substance is given through an IV or sometimes inhaled in gas form to inspect the brain and tissues. Once the tracer is injected, it will accumulate in the spot where the inflammation or injury is happening and this can help doctors get a further look into diagnosis.

Here at Medilab Global, we provide Mobile PET/CT scanners that allow doctors to treat and diagnose patients daily. Our preowned medical imaging equipment is guaranteed to bring high-quality results to patients everywhere. This used medical imaging equipment is inspected, serviced, and refurbished if needed. Our refurbished mobile PET/CT scanners can show how the brain is working or responding to treatment at any time.

Once you lie on the table, after waiting for the tracers to be absorbed, you are ready for your scan. The table will slide into the tunnel and will start to detect the signals from the tracers in the body. The computer will translate the data into images and 3D scans that can be perceived in the monitor on the PET/CT machine. The test will most likely take anywhere from 40 minutes to 2 hours and your physician will discuss the results after analyzing the images.
