Doctors and scientists who have training in PET scans and other imaging technology study how best to use PET scans to predict and diagnose a wide range of diseases and conditions. In 2012, Mayo Clinic received Food and Drug Administration approval to produce and administer Choline C-11 injection, an imaging agent used during PET scanning to help detect sites of recurrent prostate cancer. Mayo Clinic is the first institution in North America approved to produce Choline C-11.
