Radiology – Imaging & Diagnostic
 
PET-CT

PET-CT (Positron Emission Tomography- Computed tomography) has revolutionised Cancer pathways with improved diagnostic capability, by playing a significant role in staging, in an assessment of response to therapy and detection of recurrence. The scanner has two components, with PET component scanning the metabolic changes and CT providing the anatomic correlation. Combining the two modalities together has improved diagnostic efficiency. PET-CT imaging, apart from Oncology, has also a role to play in infection Imaging, Cardiology and Neurology.

Mediclinic’s City Hospital Comprehensive Cancer Centre is using a state of the art PET-CT camera. The Camera consists of 5 rings which enables the physicians to scan the patients much quicker and with high image clarity. The scan time is reduced by about 1/3rd time as compared to the conventional PET-CT imaging available, which improves patient compliance. This scanner is the only one of a kind with advanced technology in the Gulf region.

We also have an automatic dose administrator, which enables the accurate administration of tracer required for the patient.
