Medical imaging technology has revolutionized health care, allowing doctors to detect cancer earlier and improve patient outcomes.
Imaging tests are of pivotal importance in the diagnosis and management of cancer patients. Cancer diagnosis frequently requires imaging studies that in many cases use small amounts of radiation. Procedures such as X-rays; computed tomography (CT); magnetic resonance imaging (MRI); positron emission tomography (PET) and single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) are important in clinical decision-making, including therapy and follow-up.
From X-rays to PET and CT scans to theranostics, learn how medical imaging for cancer care has evolved over the decades.
