Positron Emission Tomography Centre

PET MRI Scanner

PET MR Scanner

The facility is equipped with the latest generation of PET-MR scanners which provides excellent quality imaging.

The scanner provides exciting diagnostic possibilities due to the simultaneous PET-MR acquisition 3.0T magnetic resonance technology is integrated with the latest positron emission tomography technology.

SIGNA PET/MR 3.0T is an integrated imaging and diagnosis device, it acquires MR and PET images simultaneously, saving time for patients. Especially in cases of cancer, cardiac diseases, and neurologic diseases including Alzheimer’s, that need composite diagnostics with multiple imaging devices, the efficiency can be maximized.

The SIGNA PET/MR features GE’s new, exclusive MR-compatible silicon photomultiplier detector (SiPM) technology.

This state of the art detector gives:

  • <400ps timing resolution for fast TOF performance.
  • 25cm axial field of view for sensitivity and coverage.
  • 21cps/kbq for exceptional sensitivity. 
  • Access to Q Clear and Sharp IR reconstruction technologies.

Building 15 additional facilities:

  1. The building is equipped with a purpose built PET tracer hot lab.  
  2. We have two patient resting bays that are equipped with CCTV monitoring, emergency call systems, heaters and televisions.
  3. A comfortable waiting area with TV and magazines and access to refreshments in the kitchen bay.
  4. There are study rooms available to use if required for other components of the study protocol.
