What is a PET Scan?

A PET scan is a special camera that doctors use to look inside your body to see how things are working!

Why Do People Get PET Scans?

Doctors use PET scans to find problems like sickness inside the body that can't be seen from the outside.

Feeling Nervous?

It's normal to feel a little scared about going to the doctor, but knowing what to expect can help!

Can You Bring Someone With You?

Yes! Most hospitals let you bring a family member or a friend to make you feel safe and comfortable.

You can bring someone who makes you feel brave, like your mom, dad, or a good friend.

Who Can You Bring?

Your companion can stay with you while you wait and help you get ready for the scan.
