PET scan (… skan)

A procedure in which a small amount of radioactive glucose (sugar) is injected into a vein, and
a scanner is used to make detailed, computerized pictures of areas inside the body where the
glucose is used. Because cancer cells often use more glucose than normal cells, the pictures can
be used to find cancer cells in the body. Also called positron emission tomography scan.
