Carbon-11 for you
What is Carbon-11
Carbon 11 a radioactive isotope of carbon, atomic mass 11, having a half-life of 20.39 minutes; used as a tracer in positron emission tomography. carbon 14 a radioactive isotope of carbon, atomic mass 14, having a half-life. ()

To be able to help diagnose you brain tumor we have to use Carbon-11.
Will help diagnose
show us were it look
What to do with your tumor
How is it used
in your case?
For you we will be using a PET scan which will scan the part of your body that has the cancer.
A positron emission tomography (PET) scan is an imaging test that allows doctors to check for disease in your body. The scan uses radioactive tracers in a special dye. These tracers are injected into a vein in your arm and are then absorbed by your organs and tissues.
