Instrument Features
The hospital uses high-quality positron emission tomography and computed tomography PET / CT which utilizes PHILIPS company's open-machine design. Features include:
1. Malignant cancer is the first of the top 10 causes of death in our country. PET is an advanced non-invasive tool for the diagnosis of cancer. PET is combined with CT (Computer tomography) to provide PET functional images and CT anatomical images at the same time in one inspection. This method significantly improves the accuracy of tumor detection. As long as the tumor is greater than 0.4 cm, it can be detected.
2. The main clinical diagnostic applications:
  (1) Cancer tumors: Early detection of tumor, preoperative tumor staging and assessment, postoperative or post-treatment effect assessment, follow-up of postoperative tumor recurrence and metastasis.
  (2) Cancer screening: Family history, abnormal tumor markers, high risk to develop cancer.
  (3) Cardiac muscle survival.
  (4) Neurological: Epilepsy, Alzheimer's disease, brain tumors.
3. The main tumor applications: Lung cancer, colorectal cancer, esophageal cancer, head and neck cancer, breast cancer, lymphoma, melanoma, poorly differentiated thyroid cancer.
