Global PET-CT Scanner Devices Market: Overview

Positron emission tomography-computed tomography scan in a single imaging session helps to gather information about the structure as well as function of cells and tissues in the body. In the past few years, large number of PET scans have been carried out with instruments that are integrated with PET as well as CT scanners. The combined PET-CT scan delivers images of the anatomic location of abnormal metabolic activity occurring in the body. With the help of combined scans, an accurate diagnoses can be achieved compared to two scans performed separately.
