Mobile PET CT To Deliver Cancer Screening Closer To The Community (UK)

InHealth Molecular Imaging Solutions, leading provider of diagnostic and imaging services, has installed the first of four Biograph™ 6 TruePoint™ PET CT systems from Siemens into mobile vehicles. This is to fulfil its commitment to the Department of Health as chosen independent sector partner for delivering the PET/CT NHS Diagnostic Imaging Service.

PET•CT imaging is critical in oncology patient management. Patients undergoing cancer care need multiple scans throughout the course of treatment. Historically, in some cases, patients in the south of the UK needed to travel 50-100 miles for the procedure. The new mobile service will deliver screening provision closer to the community, reducing travelling time for people undergoing treatment.
