PET/CT is a diagnostic imaging method of nuclear medicine mainly used for the diagnosis of cancer. The examination combines functional (metabolic) and anatomical (morphological) images within one device. The examination requires intravenous administration of special radioactive substances called radiopharmaceuticals and possibly also iodine contrast agents for more accurate imaging.

The Department of Nuclear Medicine performs the following examinations:

  • PET/CT of the torso using the radiopharmaceutical fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG), administered intravenously,
  • PET/CT of the torso using the radiopharmaceutical fluorocholine (FCh),
  • PET/CT of the torso using radiopharmaceutical 18F-fluciclovin (Axumin),
  • PET/CT of the brain using the radiopharmaceutical fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG),
  • PET/CT for radiotherapy planning.

The waiting time is typically short, ranging from 2 to 3 weeks. We will be happy to call you if an earlier date becomes available.

You can schedule a PET/CT examination via phone at +420 222 999 046 or via e-mail at zadanky@ptc.cz.

We perform PET/CT examinations on the basis of a medical recommendation (referral).

  • The referral will be issued by your attending physician or a specialist doctor.
  • The referral must be stamped and signed by the doctor who issued it.
  • If you send the referral by e-mail, if possible, please include your phone number in the message. Sending your referral via e-mail will simplify and speed up the scheduling process.
  • If you cannot send the referral via e-mail, contact the reception of the Department of Nuclear Medicine at +420 222 999 046, and they will be happy to advise you on how to proceed.

On the day of your examination, bring the original referral for the PET/CT examination with the stamp and signature of the doctor who issued it.

    If you have any health concerns, you first need to visit your general practitioner or another doctor with a specific specialization (orthopedist, surgeon, etc.). If your doctor finds that a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or a positron emission tomography in combination with computed tomography (PET/CT) is right for you, they will provide you with a referral to undergo the examination.
