A Computerized Tomography (CT) scan combines a series of X-ray images taken from different angles around your body and uses computer processing to create cross-sectional images (slices) of the bones, blood vessels and soft tissues inside your body. CT scan images provide more-detailed information than plain X-rays.
A positron emission tomography (PET) scan is an imaging test that helps reveal how your tissues and organs are functioning. A PET scan uses a radioactive drug (tracer) to show this activity. This scan can sometimes detect disease before it shows up on other imaging tests
PET/CT Bone scans use F-18 sodium fluoride, a positron-emitting radio pharmaceutical to provide physiologic information of the bone. The radio pharmaceutical is absorbed by the bone tissues at sites of high bone turnover and remodeling, indicating molecular activity and increased blood flow to those areas.
