    PET FAQs

    PET Scans typically take 30 - 45 minutes.

    Prices vary based on the body part being scanned, what state you’re in, and whether you go to an inpatient or outpatient facility. They can range from $2,000 to $24,000. At Tripment Health, PET Scans start at $1,440.

    PET Scans use radioactive tracers to reveal metabolic abnormalities. They can be used to detect heart disease, cancers, and brain disorders.

    Though rare, some patients do report nausea, diarrhea, and headaches after receiving a PET Scan. These are due to the tracer that is injected, and the side effects typically disappear within 24 hours.

    If you are getting a PET Scan of your brain, your provider may ask you to rest directly before the procedure. They might put you in a dark, quiet room so your brain is relaxed and does not receive much outside stimulation.

    PET Scans are performed in a machine that looks similar to a closed MRI machine — the patient lies down on a table, which is then slowly moved into a doughnut-shaped scanner.

    Whole-body PET Scans cost $3,000 - $12,000 without insurance, while heart PET scans can cost up to $24,000. At Tripment Health, PET scans start at $1,440, and insurance is never needed.
