最新研究顯示,病患因為接受 正子掃描 (PET SCAN)  ,因而改變了腫瘤的治療方式。
 
這包括:
  1. 避免了75%原先排定的其他檢查。
  2. 76% 的病患省卻了病理切片檢查。
  3. 改變了36% 病患的治療方式

Changing the Game with  正子掃描 (PET SCAN)  
 
A recent landmark study* shows PET's game-changing ability to better manage cancer care.
Focusing on oncology cases, the study shows that:
75% of planned additional procedures and tests were avoided following a PET study
76% of patients with a pre-PET plan of biopsy avoided biopsy following PET imaging
36% of cases had a change in management after PET imaging
 
 
"All of our patients undergoing radiation therapy are scanned on the PET•CT simulator. Over half of the patients have their treatment changed due to the PET•CT study. Many are able to avoid additional diagnostic procedures."
