After the PET/CT Scan Performed by Hill Medical

Are there any risks associated with PET/CT scans?

The exposure to small amounts of radiation for a medical imaging study is the most common risk associated with a PET/CT examination. Other risks are attributed to the contrast medium that might be used for the CT portion of the scan. There are a small number of people who are allergic to this material. Please discuss any allergic history at the time of the exam with the technologist. Be sure to talk with your referring doctor about any potential risks associated with your scan.

When will I get the PET/CT scan results and how?

In general, PET/CT scan results are available to your referring physician within 24 hours. With our new secure online web viewer, your physician can have instant access to your results! As a service to our patients, you may also request a CD of your results from the facility where your examination took place.
