PET (Positron Emission Tomography) and CT (Computed Tomography) are both standard imaging tools physicians use to pinpoint disease states in the body. The Reading Hospital has acquired a permanent Philips GEMINI TF (TruFlight) system PET/CT scanner to better meet the needs of our patients. By combining PET with CT, we now offer the next dimension in diagnostic imaging power.
PET/CT is a powerful imaging technique that holds great promise in the diagnosis and anatomic information in the human body in a single scan. This allows your physician to examine your entire body at once. PET/CT provides a more complete picture, making it easier for your doctor to diagnose problems, determine the extent of disease, prescribe treatment, and track progress.
Appointments are available five days a week, and require a physicians referral. For more informatoin, please call 610-988-HELP.
Our Nuclear Medicine Department is located on the first floor of C-Building. Patients should park in the 6th Avenue Garage, using the curved entrance off Spruce Street. Enter the Hospital at the SurgiCenter entrance and follow the ramp to the corridor. Turn left, and proceed to C1 Radiology.
