At our main campus in Anniston, RMC houses the most powerful and accurate screening diagnostic imaging technology available in this part of Alabama, known as Position Emission Tomography/Computed Tomography or PET/CT Scanner.
The PET scanner at RMC delivers extremely powerful imaging technology while being safe for patients. This type of technology is commonly used early detection for tumor assessment to determine the location, aggressiveness, type and recurrence of a tumor or abnormal growth. PET scanning also benefits cardiac and pulmonary patients. Ensuring that a CT scan is done at the same time as the PET scan with minimal movement of patient, ensures the most accurate means to diagnose and localize these diseases. Because of its precise technology, radiologists are then able to choose the most effective treatment for patients.
