PET/CT Scan

Wooster Community Hospital offers the most advanced technology in Positron Emission Tomography (PET). Image PET is combined with Computerized Tomograpy (CT) to create a sophisticated, non-invasive diagnostic study of the biochemistry and physiologic function of the human body.

PET is a remarkable imaging tool that provides physicians important and specific information about the function of organs and cells within your body. CT creates images with exquisite anatomical detail. The resulting fused images provide extremely useful information for the diagnosis of disease and management of patients.
