Pet Scan Cost In India

Whatsapp Chat Chat

An imaging test using a radioactive tracer to examine diseases in the body is known as Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scan. It is different from MRI and CT scans. Machines that combine PET and CT images, called PET/CT, are commonly used.

PET scans are used to study various conditions, including Cancer, Brain disorders such as epilepsy, Heart disease, etc.

A small amount of radioactive tracer used in PET scans is given through a vein (IV). The needle is inserted on the inside of the patient's elbow. After traveling through the blood, the tracer collects in organs and tissues, which helps the radiologist see certain areas more clearly.

The patient must wait as the body absorbs the tracer, which may take about 1 hour. The patient then lies on a narrow table that slides into a large tunnel-shaped scanner. The PET detects signals from the tracer. 

A computer changes the signs into 3D pictures, displaying the images on a monitor for the healthcare provider to read. The patient must lie still during the test, as too much movement can blur images and cause errors. Depending on the body part being scanned, the test time may vary.

Pet Scan cost in India for Indian Patients is between Rs.22200 to Rs.29600. Cost for International patients is between USD 450 to USD 550.

The total cost of the treatment depends on the diagnosis and facilities opted by the patient.

Frequently asked questions related to expenses that most patients have when planing for Pet Scan.

What is the cost of tests before a PET Scan?

During the 4 hours before your appointment time, do not consume anything except water. Blood sugar will be checked before the scan. If the doctors find abnormal blood sugar levels, the scan will be canceled. This test cost is covered in the package, but the advance will not be refunded if the appointment got canceled.

Is the pharmacy and medicine cost included in the package?

The medicines available in the hospital are included in the package. However, any medications consumed by the patient outside the hospital charge extra.

How long the patient has to stay in the hospital after PET Scan?

PET Scans are usually carried out on an outpatient basis, which means you don’t have to stay in the hospital overnight. After the medicine is injected, you have to rest for about 45-60 minutes in the isolation room without moving and talking. After the test, you can go home and resume your normal activities. You have to stay outside the hospital and visit your doctor 1 or 2 weeks after the scan to get the results.
