Metabolically guided radiation therapy incorporates information from Positron Emission Tomography (PET) imaging (a metabolic method of tumor imaging) into the standard radiation treatment plan. It fuses CT and Positron Emission Tomography (PET) data to help identify tumor targets - particularly for lung, esophageal and hematological malignancies - with greater precision. Beaumont has been using CT-PET fusion as an adjunct to conventional treatment planning methods since 2002.
