When should I get my test results?

A radiologist with specialized training in PET scans will review the images, write a report and send it to your healthcare provider. This process usually takes 24 hours.

A note from Cleveland Clinic

A PET scan is a painless procedure that helps detect disease sooner than CT or MRI images. A combination PET/CT scan provides a more detailed look at organs and tissue. PET scans can ensure an accurate diagnosis and help your healthcare provider develop an effective treatment plan
