Unlike many imaging: Procedures, whereeach test tries to pay off the cost of the instrument, each pet scan needs to buy a cyclotron produced dose of flurodeoxyglucose. It has a short half life, and it must be paid as well as the scanner. These will always have high cost of production so medical tourism may not work as well as for a procedure or a simple diagnostic study.
