Introduction

    According to the Health Bureau’s statistic, malignant tumor ranked top among all causes of death in the nation. Everyday, an average of 100 people died from cancer due to malignant tumor. PET/CT is the most advanced, non-invasive and the only open-body designed diagnostic device for tumors. Combining positron emission tomography functional imaging and computed tomography anatomical imaging, it can detect tumor more accurately and identify tumor with the size of 0.4cm.

CT

    PET/CT examination can detect the presence of cancer cells, such as for lung cancer, colorectal cancer, esophageal cancer, head and neck cancer, lymphoma, melanoma, and poorly differentiated thyroid cancer. It can be used clinically to identify cancer cells at early stage, to perform tumor staging and assessment before operation, to do outcome evaluation after treatment or operation, as well as to track for tumor recurrences or metastasis after operation. Moreover, it can perform cancer screening for people with family medical history, abnormal tumor markers, or high risk of having cancer, for cardiac muscle survival, and for neuro-related epilepsy, Alzheimer’s disease, and brain tumor.
