Traditional imaging techniques (ultrasound, CT alone, MRI) mostly generate a view of the anatomy or of the structure of organs or organ-systems with high spatial accuracy. Their disadvantage is that they are able to differentiate between benign and malignant tumors only when the tissues have already modified in structure, size or shape.
PET is an acronym for Positron Emission Tomography, widely recognized as one of the most advanced medical functional imaging methods. Combined with CT (computerized tomography) it is called PET-CT that represents the most advanced imaging technology today.
Functional imaging technologies (e. g. dynamic IMR, SPECT, PET) provide not only simple anatomical images but data corresponding to various functional characteristics of organs or of tissues (e.g. blood circulation, metabolic activity) at a given time.
First, diseases cause changes in the functional characteristics of organs and tissues which are usually followed by anatomical changes. Therefore, it is critically important to identify diseases by functional imaging technologies much earlier, than any development of any apparent anatomical changes.
PET-CT Positron Emission Tomography is a functional imaging technology that is able to generate images of biochemical processes of the body with the help of molecules labelled with positron-emitting isotopes.
Today, with PET cameras equipped with a CT device, functional information is merged with anatomical information (CT) into a single image during a fast imaging session. During the past years, PET-CT technology has brought revolutionary changes to oncological, cardiological and neurological diagnostics.
The fee of whole-body PET-CT scan is 850 EUR
Please note that the fee must be transferred to the bank account of the Pozitron Diagnostics PET/CT Centre at least 3 days before the examination is performed.
The fee includes:
Prior assessment of condition and professional individual consultation
When requesting an appointment, examination without waiting
The prepared examination material, PET/CT images written to a personalized CD
The medical finding will be ready within 3 working days in Hungarian language. At request we can translate it to English language. The fee of it is 35 EURO which also has to be settled by a money transfer including the examination fee, as well. The translation is ready in 3 more working days. The file that contains the report and the CD can be picked up personally or by your representative at the Center, or we can post it to a given address upon request.
