• Gallium-68 DOTATATE

    A better image can save a life.

    First patients scanned with donor-funded, cancer-tracing technology.

Local access to the most advanced care and technology is always important. A global pandemic only compounds that.

A more precise image can save a life

Best-in-class imaging, here at home.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words and the comparison photo here is a testament to that.

Both images are PET-CT scans of the same neuroendocrine cancer patient. The one on the left uses the former detection methods available in our region, while the right scan uses the gallium-68 DOTATATE tracer. As you can see, the gallium-68 DOTATATE scan (right) is able to detect the neuroendocrine tumour sites with unparalleled accuracy. This accuracy means a targeted treatment plan can be immediately put in place to address the needs of the patient.
