5 doctors agree
In brief: 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.

The price in India for quality PET-CT is about 400-500 USD. The price in Thailand is about 800-1000 USD. The price in Singapore is about 1500-1800 USD.

In brief: Flight > scan
The airfare to india and back will likely be more than the pet/ct scan.
I do not know the price of a pet/ct scan in india.
