Q:   What if I am diabetic and having a PET scan?

A: Inform PET personnel and special procedures will be followed. The scan is usually not scheduled until at least four hours after the last administration of insulin or eating. You may be required to have the PET scan early in the morning prior to taking insulin and eating. In this case you should bring your insulin to the PET department so that it may be taken after you exam. You may also be asked to take your insulin and eat in the morning and then arrive in the early afternoon for your PET scan at least four hours later. The key is communication with the PET department prior to the date of your PET exam to avoid inappropriate preparation for the exam.
