Pet Scan Cost In Malaysia

Whatsapp Chat Chat
Pet Scan cost in Malaysia is between USD 900 to USD 1100. The total cost of the treatment depends on the diagnosis and facilities opted by the patient.

What is Pet Scan?

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.

How is the Procedure Performed?

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.

Who is the Right Doctor for Pet Scan?

A nuclear medicine specialist or a radiologist performs PET scans.

What is included in the cost of Pet Scan?

The cost of PET Scan includes:

  • Preparing for the scan, such as blood tests and post-scan consultations
  • Specific area of the body being scanned. For e.g., a whole-body PET scan may cost more than a brain PET scan

What are the factors affecting cost of Pet Scan?

The overall cost of the procedure also varies based on the patient's condition and preferences. Some of these factors are:

  • Cost may differ depending on the diagnostic center
  • Type of hospital and room opted (General, Twin sharing, or single room), if patient is admitted to the hospital
  • Complications, if they occur (include nausea, vomiting, headache, itching, flushing, mild rash, etc. after the tracer is injected)
