A positron emission tomography (PET) scan is an imaging test that allows your doctor to check for diseases in your body.
The scan uses a special dye containing radioactive tracers. These tracers are either swallowed, inhaled, or injected into a vein in your arm depending on what part of the body is being examined. Certain organs and tissues then absorb the tracer.
When detected by a PET scanner, the tracers help your doctor to see how well your organs and tissues are working.
The tracer will collect in areas of higher chemical activity, which is helpful because certain tissues of the body, and certain diseases, have a higher level of chemical activity. These areas of disease will show up as bright spots on the PET scan.
The PET scan can measure blood flow, oxygen use, how your body uses sugar, and much more. A PET scan is typically an outpatient procedure. This means you can go about your day after the test is finished.
Your doctor may order a PET scan to inspect your blood flow, your oxygen intake, or the metabolism of your organs and tissues. PET scans show problems at the cellular level, giving your doctor the best view of complex systemic diseases.
PET scans are most commonly used to detect:
Before the scan, you'll get tracers through a vein in your arm, through a solution you drink, or in a gas you inhale. Your body needs time to absorb the tracers, so you'll wait about an hour before the scan begins.
Next, you'll undergo the scan, which can last anywhere from 30 to 45 minutes. This involves lying on a narrow table attached to a PET machine, which looks like a giant letter "O." The table glides slowly into the machine so that the scan can be conducted. You'll need to lie still during the scan. The technician will let you know when you need to remain still.
You may be asked to hold your breath for several seconds. You'll hear buzzing and clicking noises during the test. When all the necessary images have been recorded, you'll slide out of the machine. The test is then complete.
Generally, all tracers leave your body after two days. Meanwhile, a trained specialist will interpret the PET scan images and share the information with your doctor. The results are usually ready for your doctor within two business days, and your doctor will go over the results with you at your follow-up appointment.
We at IndiCure completely understand your concerns and it is always our endeavor to provide the best outcome for every patient. Following is the list of questions you must ask before you embark on your journey for PET Scan in India.

Cancer is daunting. I was diagnosed with breast cancer and advised to travel immediately to India for the treatment. Found IndiCure online and traveled within 10 days. We were well received by Team IndiCure and got immediate treatment. I am very much humbled with the kindness of the doctors- each time we met they cleared all our doubts and were very helpful.
After undergoing 6 cycles of chemotherapy and surgery, I am cancer free now and ready to travel back to my country.
Thank you so much IndiCure for all the help.
Treatment: Breast cancer
After undergoing my cancer treatment in India, I have developed deep respect for Indian doctors and Indian healthcare services. The doctors are prompt in their actions and extremely helpful. I underwent extensive investigations including PET scan and other tests and as soon as they knew my exact condition, they made a comprehensive treatment plan and immediately started my treatment. The hospital staff was also very kind and co-operative.
Though it was a long journey, it was definitely a fruitful one. Thanks, IndiCure.
Treatment: Multiple Myeloma
I am highly indebted to the whole IndiCure team and Dr. Singh specifically for saving my life. The doctors in my home country Ghana had clearly stated that if I do not get operated for a brain tumor at the earliest, I would not live more than a month. But the promptness with which IndiCure team arranged things for me was something extraordinary. I am extremely satisfied with the whole experience and completely relieved of all my symptoms. Thanks a lot!
Treatment: Brain tumor
Thank you IndiCure Health Team for all the support you provided my father. You deserve 6 stars for customer service. Your team was instrumental in setting up my Dad with Dr. Babu and other healthcare teams. Your professionalism is exceptional. You responded to my all concerns within 24 hours; you reassured me everything would be okay when I needed it the most; you showed compassion that I've never seen before. Dr. Babu successfully operated on my Dad and we are so grateful for that. I would like to say a special thank you to Mr. Bachir, whom my dad now calls a friend. Mr. Bachir went above and beyond his job responsibilities and responded to the present every time my father needed him. I will recommend your services to friends and family every time I get the opportunity to do so. No amount of words can express my gratitude, so on behalf of my family, we would like to THANK YOU. Sincerely, a father's daughter.

Both of us were very pleased with the professional care provided to us from the first email to enquiry to the moment we stepped foot in India. We have never received such wonderful hospitality and always attending to our needs. We would both certainly recommend Indicure for any treatments and/or surgeries. We have been utterly amazed at what India has to offer and will definitely visit again.

Experience and turn around was great. I wouldn't mind doing business with them again.
"One thing that stood out for me, as long as the hospital and the service in the US as compared to the hospital here, working with IndiCure, was that the service was amazing!"

My son had the gastric sleeve in Delhi last September 2017. A year later my son is a different young man. Our reason for traveling from Australia, was his age being 14. You saved my sons life and I will be forever grateful for that, the care and service was immaculate. yes it can be a culture shock, in your another country. But it not any less of what we would have received here.
Dr. Ruchika in India delivered efficient and professional service from the outset, matching up my weight and health concerns with the most amazing surgeon at the Apollo Spectra hospital in New Delhi, who made good all the promises that had been made, and MORE. All arrangements were executed seamlessly. Very glad I found them and will certainly be using them again, should the need arise.

The IndiCure folks (Jagruti) hooked me up with THE BEST doctors for my heart issues. Period. The Physicians were thorough, professional, fast, proficient and affordable. Dealing with Indicure was super easy, super fast and a very pleasant experience. I HIGHLY recommend this process for those with no insurance or those who cannot afford the 20% co-pay for expensive procedures. Check the cost against prices in the USA folks.
