The latest in positron emission tomography (PET) to visualize functional physiology. Frequently used to evaluate organ activity and assess/detect malignancies in specific cases where there is a requirement to visualize functional physiology of a body area. These scans can also be leveraged to evaluate overall health and promote ongoing wellness.
The institute includes the most advanced technology in PET scanning, including the most precise imaging of the brain available using PET-MRI technology — one of only 30 such devices in the country. PET-MRI combines metabolic activity from the PET scan and anatomic data from the magnetic resonance imaging. Results from a PET-MRI offers a comprehensive look at the body.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is used to provide exceptional images of the brain and other organs, as well as joints and soft tissues. MRI scans can be performed to assess a number of different conditions including cancer, infection, inflammation, and musculoskeletal problems.
The MRI at Jefferson Imaging at Villanova is a powerful, highly-advanced scanner that can perform all types of standard MRI scans in a patient-friendly environment. Jefferson Imaging accepts major insurances and offers expedited appointments.

Positron Emission Tomography (PET) is used to visualize functional physiology. PET imaging is frequently used to evaluate organ activity and assess/detect malignancies.
PET imaging can help find cancers, detect small tumors, discover unknown metastatic cancer, and evaluate response to therapy. Brain PET scans can be used to evaluate patients with head injury, cognitive impairment, seizures, and other neurological and psychiatric conditions.
