We bought equipment from Siemens, and the machine will be installed as soon as the hospital declared that it is ready - the device is so heavy, it requires ceilings of the rooms located underneath the examination suite to be reinforced!
We want to express our gratitude for the PET-CET Scanner. The device combines two types of tomography - positron emission (PET) and computer tomography (CT). Our specialist will receive information about the exact location of the disease, and they are then able to tailor their response accordingly. They will be able to discover the source of the disease and to check if the treatment is making progress. It will be the first scanner of this type entirely available at a paediatric clinic in the country.
