CT scan with fusion for sinuses?

Anybody have this & could you explain what it is? I've had CT scans but not "with fusion." I'm not sure what the difference is. Thanks.

Re: CT scan with fusion for sinuses?

The "fusion" refers to a combined CT - PET scan. The combination scan allows the soft tissues to be seen more clearly (although they're fairly clear on a basic CT scan) but requires a dye injection for the improved imaging.
