HCA Healthcare UK is the first private hospital group in the UK to have the latest fully digital PET-CT scanners. By combining computised tomography (CT) and positron emission tomography (PET) technology in a total body scanner, they can help diagnose disease earlier.

They give doctors a highly accurate picture of what's happening inside the body and can precisely locate cancerous cells. They're usually used to diagnose and monitor cancer and heart disease in a minimally invasive way. Compared to non-digital scanners, they expose you to a smaller dose of radiation.


For the PET part of the procedure, a radioactive tracer is injected into the body and absorbed by the body's cells. Any cancerous cells will show as 'hot spots' on the scan.The CT scan uses X-rays to produce detailed images of inside the body.
