If the doctor suspects that there are issues with your heart, he may request that you undergo a test called PET imaging. However, what happens if you live in a rural area whose only clinic does not have a traditional PET machine? There’s no need to worry because the clinic can rent a mobile PET imaging machine and perform the test wherever your clinic may be located. Here are some advantages the PET test holds over other cardiac tests.
Twice the Clarity
Compared to other imaging tests that may be available, the PET scan can show signs of disease before any symptoms occur. This is incredibly beneficial to taking preventative measures before any long-term damage can occur.
No Biopsy Needed
A mobile PET imaging test is used to monitor the metabolic functions of the human body. In this way, there is no need for a traditional biopsy because the PET image already serves this function. It can also determine just how widespread the disease is within the body of the patient.
Without PET imaging, you would need to undergo surgery to confirm if a tumor is benign or malignant. The technology that a PET scan offers can determine this fact without any need to use a scalpel on your flesh. This saves not only great stress for the patient, but it also saves a great deal of money as well.
