I have had a ct/pet scan about 10 years ago.
As far as I know they do the whole body.

The radioactively tagged sugar solution goes all round the body. It is picked up by the scan showing areas that are "using up" more of the radioactive sugar soln compared to other parts of the body eg - areas where cancer cells are metabolising.

Hope this helps Marcella - regards - tony k
