Nuclear Medicine & PET-CT Scans in New Jersey

ImageCare Centers provides services for PET CT scans in New Jersey. Positron emission tomography – computed tomography, or a PET CT scan, is a type of nuclear medicine imaging that uses small amounts of radioactive material to determine the severity of a variety of diseases. A PET CT scan can pinpoint molecular activity within the body that could indicate an issue before that issue begins to cause changes in anatomy.

During our northern New Jersey PET CT scans, radioactive tracers are used to show activity within the body at the cellular level. This helps to identify disease in its earliest stages, as well as a patient’s immediate response to treatment. Some of the applications of PET CT scans include:


  • Diagnosing coronary artery disease
  • Evaluating the damage from a heart attack
  • Determining whether the patient will benefit from a cardiac procedure


  • Identifying the source of seizures
  • Identifying Alzheimer’s, multi-infract dementia, or depression
  • Analyzing Parkinson’s disease
  • Evaluating the extent of a stroke and the following therapy


  • Tumor detection and diagnosis, with a high degree of accuracy for:
    • Brain Cancer
    • Breast Cancer
    • Colorectal Cancer
    • Esophageal Cancer
    • Head and Neck Cancer
    • Lung Cancer
    • Lymphomas
