KMH Cardiology & Diagnostic Centres has acquired a state-of-the-art PET/CT scannerthat can transform the way doctors diagnose and treat cancer, heart disease andneurological disorders. The new system can tell doctors the precise extent and characteristics of disease.
Information from the exam helps doctors diagnose disease accurately confidently, and often avoid putting patients through painful, invasiveprocedures, which become unnecessary after knowledge of thePET/CT results.
PET/CT provides information that enables doctors to make diagnosesquickly. It helps them detect some diseases earlier, whentreatment may be more effective and more likely to succeed.The technology helps doctors:
“Our advanced PET/CT scanner is a state-of-the-art system. In a patient who has atumour, the exam will tell us whether a lesion is cancerous, whether it has spreadto other parts of the body and will also differentiate between tumour recurrenceand scar tissue,” says Dr. Kathy Yip, Chief Medical Director, KMH Canada.Our advanced PET/CT scanner helps doctorssee precisely where disease is located, and alsoidentify the nature of the disease, in picturestaken in an exam that generally takes lessthan half an hour.
