Phone Service Update

We are experiencing extremely high call volume related to COVID-19 vaccine interest. Please understand that our phone lines must be clear for people with urgent and acute medical care needs. Unfortunately, this means we are unable to accept phone calls to schedule COVID-19 vaccinations at this time. When this changes, we will update this web site. Read more COVID-19 Vaccine Information

Types of scans we perform:

  • PET/CT FDG Oncologic Imaging, using the metabolic biomarkers 18F-FDG to help diagnose cancer and detect the spread of cancer to other organs, as well measure the effectiveness of anti-cancer therapy.
  • PET/CT Sodium Fluoride Imaging, using the F18-NaF biomarker, a highly sensitive bone-seeking PET tracer, to detect skeletal abnormalities.
  • PET/CT FDG Brain Imaging, used to evaluate for cognitive impairment, dementia and seizure disorders.
  • PET/CT AMYLOID Imaging, using biomarkers such as F18-Florbetaben and F18- Florbetapir used to estimate amyloid plaque density in patients with cognitive impairment, Alzheimer’s disease and other causes of cognitive decline.
  • PET/CT Myocardial Viability Imaging, using 18F-FDG to assess myocardial viability in patients with advanced coronary artery disease and left ventricular dysfunction.
  • PET/CT Myocardial Perfusion Imaging, using N-13 ammonia provides high-sensitivity detection of occlusive coronary artery disease, evaluation of the effectiveness of therapeutic interventions, and evaluation of quantitative myocardial flow reserve.
  • PET/CT Inflammation and Infection Imaging, using F18-FDG for detection of sarcoidosis, large-vessel vasculitis, implant related infections, and fever of unknown origin.
  • PET/CT Ga68 Dotatate Imaging of somatostatin receptors for highly sensitive detection and treatment follow-up of neuroendocrine tumors.
