At PET/CT of Las Colinas, we take our role as a community member in Texas very seriously. We are independently-owned and operated and this allows us to offer standards of excellence; providing our patients with world-class service from start to finish.
Our commitment to patients and physicians begins with providing the most state-of-the-art diagnostic technology through our PET/CT imaging. A non-invasive procedure, PET/CT combines the technologies of two powerful imaging techniques in one sophisticated test; a Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scan which identifies the existence or growth of disease and Computed Tomography (CT) which identifies the location of disease. Through PET/CT imaging, physicians are able to diagnose, accurately pinpoint, and monitor the existence of disease – cancer, heart disease, and a variety of brain disorders; especially important in the beginning stages when a comprehensive treatment plan can make all the difference. We have made a commitment by investing in the most top-of-the-line imaging technology available which, in turn, means unsurpassed accuracy and peace of mind for our patients.
