Positron Emission Tomography (PET) Imaging Facility
The Positron Emission Tomography (PET) Imaging Facility is a state-of-the-art facility equipped with two high-resolution scanners.
- Siemens Biograph 64 PET/CT scanner
- Siemens ECAT HR
The facility, located on UT Southwestern Medical Center's North Campus, offers high-resolution PET scanning for neurological, oncological, and psychiatric applications.
Unlike more routine imaging systems that show what tissues look like (X-ray, CT, ultrasound, or MRI), PET studies reveal information about tissue function and metabolism. PET scans are frequently used to diagnose and stage cancer.
