The PET scanner is a large machine that has a round opening in the middle. Inside the circular area are multiple rings or detectors that record the emission of energy from the radiotracers found within the patient’s body. The scanner combines these two types of information, allowing the physician to diagnose any changes in the activity of cells. It also allows physicians to determine exactly where the changes are occurring. A CT scanner is a large box-like machine with a short tunnel in the center of the device. Patients lie on a narrow examination table or bed that slides in and out of the tunnel. X-ray tubes and electronic X-ray detectors are located opposite of each other and are referred to as a gantry. The imaging computer is located in a separate control room. The technician remains in direct visual contact with the patient and will have the ability to converse with the patient via speaker and microphone.
