PET Imaging in Ontario

In addition to promoting high-quality cancer imaging, the Cancer Imaging Program oversees the Evidence-Based Positron Emission Tomography (PET) Program (PET Scans Ontario) through a collaboration with the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care and the Cardiac Care Network.

Key elements of the PET Scans Ontario Program

  • A committee of experts to advise on issues affecting access to PET in Ontario, including indications to be funded and the geographic location of services
  • Evaluation of emerging indications in Ontario through the PET registry
  • Selected clinical trials guided by the PET Steering Committee
  • A case-by-case review program (PET Access Program)
  • Continuous evidence review to ensure alignment with emerging evidence on the clinical utility of PET
  • Ongoing communications to promote equitable access to PET for Ontario patients
