At Castlereagh Imaging, we understand the importance of personalised and comprehensive medical care, especially when it comes to cancer diagnosis and treatment. That's why we have invested in two state-of-the-art PET-CT scanners. These machines represent the latest advancements in medical imaging technology, and they play a crucial role in how medical professionals approach cancer diagnosis for our patients.
As a patient, you want to receive the most accurate and timely diagnosis possible. Our PET-CT technology allows us to provide just that. PET, which stands for Positron Emission Tomography, is an advanced imaging technique that uses a small amount of radioactive tracer (FDG) to create functional images of your body. This means that your doctor can see how your tissues and organs are functioning, giving particularly valuable insights into the presence and behaviour of cancerous cells.
These scans also utilise CT, or Computed Tomography, which uses x-rays to create detailed structural pictures of your body. By combining PET and CT in a single scanner, we can provide a comprehensive evaluation of your condition. This not only helps your doctor with the initial diagnosis but also plays a significant role in treatment planning.
Our PET-CT services are currently available at two convenient locations:
- Hurstville (Waratah Private Hospital) and
- Nepean Health Hub.
We understand that convenience is crucial, so we have strategically placed our scanners in these easily accessible locations.
Booking an appointment with us is simple and convenient. You can request an appointment at any time by visiting our website and clicking on the booking link.
