PET/CT Case Studies

Since opening in April 2000, New England PET Imaging System has provided PET and PET/CT services to patients with a variety of clinical needs in the areas of oncology, cardiology, and neurology.

We have attached a number of case studies for your review as well as specific cases focusing on Oncology, Cardiology and Neurology presented in the subpages listed above.

These case studies reflect the clinical questions addressed by FDG PET and the impact that PET and PET/CT can have in improved diagnosis and detection of disease, as well as in treatment planning and the monitoring of the disease process.
