Positron Emission Tomography (PET) is a nuclear medicine scan that uses a radioactive sugar solution to create images of how your organs and tissues function, and to identify normal vs. abnormal (cancer) cells. When the sugar solution concentrates in certain areas of the body, the PET scan picks up the pattern of radioactivity and creates 3-dimentional images. Different colours and degrees of brightness in a PET scan image represent different levels of organ and tissue function. Cancer cells require more sugar to function, and therefore, appear brighter in a PET scan image.
