Broward Health North also offers PET Scan (Positron Emission Tomography)

PET is a powerful, proven diagnostic imaging modality that displays the biological basis of function in the organ systems of the human body unobtainable through any other means. PET can effectively pinpoint the source of many of the most common cancers, heart and neurological diseases, eliminating the need for redundant tests and diagnostic surgical procedures. PET is safe and replaces multiple medical testing procedures with a single exam. PET shows all the organ systems often before it shows the progress of disease and how the body responds to treatments.

PET assists in the clinical management of:

ONCOLOGY- Lung cancer, breast cancer, testicular cancer, lymphoma, melanoma, recurrent brain tumors, tumor therapy monitoring, and assessing effectiveness of treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation
