SPECT exams are available on our Salem and Lynn hospital campuses.

Positron Emission Tomography (PET)

The PET exam is the most technologically advanced nuclear medicine procedure. It shows cellular function and metabolism, rather than the anatomy of the body’s structures that traditional X-ray, CT and MRI imaging shows.
