PET is an emerging trend in diagnostic imaging that allows physicians to make more accurate evaluations of various cancers and determine the most beneficial course of action. PET imaging has also been shown to be an effective tool in the evaluation of certain cardiac diseases as well as various skin and brain disorders.

Unlike other diagnostic imaging modalities, PET shows metabolic activity and can reveal disease states before structural damage is evident. Currently, the most common applications of PET in cancer patients are detecting recurrent disease early, diagnosing disease when other tests are inconclusive, staging the extent of the disease, and monitoring the response to therapy.
