Nash Hospitals proudly offers on-site PET-CT imaging to the Rocky Mount community and surrounding areas.  The Radiologists of Nash X-Ray Associates are skilled in the interpretation of these studies.  PET-CT involves Nuclear Medicine (PET scan) to evaluate the "energy" usage of areas within the body along with CT to provide a picture of the area of this activity within the body.  Cancer cells often have high "metabolic activity" or "energy" usage, which allows their detection. 

PET-CT is often used in the initial assessment (staging) of cancer and to evaluate the effectivness of cancer treatments.
