POSITRON-EMISSION TOMOGRAPHY DEPARTMENT (PET)
PET (positron emission tomography) is a modern, highly sensitive method of nuclear diagnostics allowing to evaluate various metabolic processes occurring in organs and tissues. The method is based on the ability to track the distribution of biologically active compounds labeled with positron-emitting radioisotopes in the body.
PET combined with computed tomography (PET/CT) is a method of radionuclide diagnostics that allows during one examination to assess metabolic (according to PET) and structural (according to CT) changes in certain organs and tissues.
The PET Center at A.N. Bakulev Center works in all major areas of PET diagnostics:
oncology (more than 80% of performed examinations), including hematology, neuro-oncology and oncourology;
diagnostics of inflammation, including inflammation in the vascular wall and infective endocarditis.
