The Top Reasons Why Physicians Refer Their Patients to PET/CT services


1. Services are provided through a partnership between Tufts Medical Center and Shields Healthcare Group—potentially saving your patients money.

2. Tufts Medical Center works with Shields Healthcare—the region’s premier independent provider of imaging services. Thanks to this partnership, our PET/CT services are  significantly lower in price compared with other Boston- area hospitals. Patients with high-deductible plans and coinsurance are looking for better value in health care.

3. Tufts Medical Center radiologists read the images. Our highly trained academic physicians will read the scan and provide you with fast results.

Our hours enable patients to get their scans before or after work, and have been extended for increased flexibility.
