You will be able to leave once your scan is complete. Unless otherwise instructed, food and drink can be consumed immediately after the scan. Patients are encouraged to drink plenty of fluids after the scan to remove any remaining PET imaging agent from the body. While the scan is very safe, as a precaution, it is best to maintain distance from pregnant women and small children for 6-8 hours after your exam.
The results of the scan will be read by one of our specialized PET/CT radiologists then sent to your physician. Please schedule an appointment to review the results with your doctor.
