Blue Mountain Health System Joins St. Luke’s University Health Network

Positron Emission Tomography (PET)

High-tech Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scans are now available at the Gnaden Huetten campus of the Blue Mountain Health System. PET scanning is a nuclear medicine procedure that produces pictures of the body’s biological functions. PET captures functional changes related to metabolism, which are usually signs that structural change in tissues may occur. The ability to show chemical functioning of organs separates PET from other techniques like x-ray, CT and MRI which show only organ or tissue structure. PET is a safe, painless procedure that is revolutionizing the world of diagnostic imaging.

To schedule an appointment for your PET scan, call Central Scheduling at 1-866-400-2970.
