Bridgeport Hospital PET/CT

PET/CT (Positron Emission Tomography/Computed Tomography) helps to diagnose and monitor certain types of serious illnesses.  CT scans use x-rays and computers to produce images of the soft tissue within the body, including the brain. These highly developed images are used to detect signs of disease or trauma within the body. PET scan is a highly specialized imagery technique that produces three-dimensional colored images to provide detailed information about the body’s chemistry.

The 1100SF diagnostic center for Bridgeport Hospital was added in conjunction with the Pediatric Specialties department within the same building in Trumbull. The facility includes Waiting Rooms, Scan Room/Control Room, Hot Lab and Uptake, Soiled and Clean Holding Rooms, and Accessible Toilet Room. Lead-lined construction including walls, doors and ceilings were required at various locations within the spaces.
