This document is the technical specification of the Positron Emission Tomography – Computed Tomography (PET/CT) Reporting Specification showing the individual data elements (fields), their format and lists of codes where these are not contained in standard data sources e.g. the NHS Data Model and Dictionary v3.


The purpose of the PET-CT Reporting Specification is to enable the reporting, in a uniform format, of PET-CT scan data at providers of healthcare to commissioners. This will ensure that reporting is consistent across all organisations.
