This picture diagnostic test is frequently indicated in the event of serious medical illnesses like cancer, neurological problems, and cardiovascular disease. A PET scan is used to evaluate the success of treatment while an illness is being treated.

Preparing for a PET scan test:

  • Bring your medical history along with any previous scans

  • Make sure to remove any metallic objects, such as keys, jewellery, belt, wallet, etc.

  • Get dietary advice from the doctor at least 2 days before the test

  • As the PET scan alters the body’s blood sugar, hence, diabetics need to consult with their doctor about possible risks and how to mitigate them

  • Make sure to carry your Kidney Function Test (KFT) report, no more than a month old

  • A radioactive tracer is injected about 30 to 60 minutes before the test, post-which you’ll need to rest for the tracer to dissolve
