PET/CT Scans and Lymphoma

A PET/CT scan is where you have both a CT scan and a PET scan in the same appointment. A PET/CT scan can help give a clearer picture of which areas of your body are affected by lymphoma.

“Most people with lymphoma have several scans. CT and PET/CT scans can be helpful in diagnosing, planning treatment and checking your lymphoma response to treatment.”

Professor George Mikhaeel, Consultant Clinical Oncologist
Dr. Rob’s comment

This information outlines PET (positron emission tomography) and computed tomography (CT). Using these techniques together as a PET/CT scan helps to give a clear picture of how lymphoma is affecting your body.

Forms

Upon receiving your requisition INITIO staff will contact you via phone to gather your detailed medical history. They will fill out the appropriate intake package on your behalf. Upon your arrival at the clinic, you will be given the opportunity to review and make any necessary edits to your intake package before signing.

Alternatively, you may print the intake package at home, fill out the forms with your medical history and send it to us either through fax: (604) 678–9279 or via e-mail: info@initiomedical.ca. If you are sending us an intake package please ensure that your doctor has sent us a requisition.

As per the INITIO Medical Group Inc. cancellation policy, at the time of booking, we ask each patient to provide us with their credit card details. This information is used in the event that the patient cancels their appointment, or fails to attend their scheduled appointment.

Please note that no charges are made to the credit card on file, except in the event of an appointment cancellation or a failure to attend a scheduled appointment. All charges for the scan are made in person upon completion of the appointment, at which point the credit card authorization form will be shredded.
