Privacy and the PET E-tool
The PET Scans Ontario program provides an information technology tool – the PET E-tool – that physicians and PET centres can use to electronically share necessary clinical information about a patient receiving a PET scan.
The program also collects data about PET scans for planning and managing the delivery and expansion of PET scan services in the province. The program’s objective is to help prevent unnecessary testing by having PET scans available only for situations where evidence shows that patients can benefit from the test.
