Indications and Safety Information

PET/CT imaging is a routine nuclear medicine or molecular imaging procedure.

Radiopharmaceuticals are approved by the Food and Drug Administration and prepared with great care. They are tested carefully prior to general use. Nuclear imaging has been used for more than five decades and side effects are rare. While exposure to radiation does involve risk, naturally occurring background radiation and activities such as flying in an airplane all contribute to a lifetime exposure that is only slightly increased by medical imaging.
