The anatomical and biological information obtained from the PET/CT system permits accurate tumor detection and localization for almost all cancers, for example, melanoma, lymphoma, lung, colorectal, head and neck, cervical, breast, esophageal, myeloma, thyroid, and ovarian cancers.

Other applications include reducing biopsy sampling errors, improvement of therapy planning, and assessment of response to treatments such as chemotherapy or radiation therapy.

The entire examination is generally performed in less than one hour, providing comprehensive diagnostic information to the clinicians and attending physicians quickly.
