Rockville, Maryland PET: How many PET (Positron Emission Tomography)
facilities are located within 100miles of Rockville Maryland -AND-
what is the name, address, and phone number of each?  

Your search may include city names or zip codes.  If so, here are a few samples:

PET scanners (a very expensive camera) are located at major hospitals,
medical centers, and free standing clinics.  PET is a major diagnostic
imaging modality used predominantly in determining the presence and
severity of cancers, neurological conditions, and cardiovascular
disease. It is currently the most effective way to check for cancer
recurrences. Studies demonstrate that PET offers significant
advantages over other forms of imaging such as CT or MRI scans in
diagnosing disease. Last year more than 200,000 PET scans were
performed at more than 700 sites around the country.

Hey Mike_s

This list appears to have to be as widely regional as it was for
Biloxi due to the widely separated nature of the centers.  I'm sure
this is due to the rapid decay of the isotope used for the scan and
the necessity of short transport times.  I'm giving you complete state
listings for MD, PA and VA from PETNet.  I was Surprised not to find
ANY within the limits of DC, but there you have it.
