Positron Emission Tomography–Computed Tomography (PET-CT) detects bodily changes at cellular and molecular level to identify early onset of diseases, like cancer. PET-CT is more efficient than other imaging tests. PET provides functional data and CT provides quality anatomical images. PET-CT uses small amounts of radioactive materials called radiotracers or dye, a special camera and a computer for accurate diagnosis. Commonly used dyes include 18F-FDG, 68Ga-PSMA, 18F-DOPA and 18F-PSMA. PET-CT is recommended for staging the disease, understanding therapy response, detecting recurrence early and routine follow-ups after treatment.
At Nueclear, we provide reliable high-quality PET-CT imaging services to cancer patients across India at an affordable cost.

A PET scan can diagnose:
A PET scan measures essential functions within the body, including blood flow, oxygen utilisation, and glucose metabolism. Additionally, it can identify organs and tissues that may not be functioning optimally.
Your healthcare provider recommends this scan when he/she suspects cancer and certain inflammatory conditions and infections. It is also recommended during treatment and follow-up sessions to:
If you have heart issues, take the scan to:
In neurological health issues, PET scan is recommended to evaluate possible brain abnormalities, such as tumours, seizures and other central nervous system conditions.
Radiotracer is injected into a vein. Fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) is a commonly used radiotracer. You may also get an IV injection of a contrast dye that helps produce sharper CT images. Cancerous cells absorb FDG. The patient is then imaged on a PET scanner. The scan locates malignant lesions called hotspots and produces images of the affected tissue. PET scan detects cellular-molecular activities within your body to help with accurate diagnosis at an early stage.
Nueclear focuses on accurate high-quality cancer diagnosis by testing, analysing, establishing and setting up diagnostic centres for nuclear scanning. We offer a range of comprehensive radiology solutions to diagnose a broad spectrum of ailments, mainly cancer. We use state-of-the-art imaging technologies, including CT and PET-CT scanners, to assist in cancer diagnosis, staging, monitoring treatment efficacy and evaluating disease recurrence. Nueclear also owns medical cyclotron units, which produce radioactive biomarkers such as FDG, PSMA and DOPA required for scanning.
