Early detection of cancer
Alliance Medical‘s brand new purpose-built PET-CT Centre at the Park has welcomed over 800 patients in the first two months since opening in September 22. It features one of only two GE Discovery MI 5-Ring Gen 2 PET-CTs in the UK, which can detect smaller lesions at earlier stages than ever before.
Patients benefit from lower radiation doses and quicker scans, with full-body imaging completed in just 10 minutes. Faster image reconstruction also enables scans to be reviewed during the appointment, allowing further imaging immediately if required.
The facility is also used for vital research into diseases such as cancer and dementia with the Royal Surrey NHS Foundation Trust, the University of Surrey and National Physical Laboratory (NPL).
