Diagnostic Imaging is part of the QEII cancer care team that helps diagnose many cancers in the province by using a PET-CT machine.
PET-CT’s are crucial in a patient’s cancer diagnosis as it helps healthcare teams determine where cancer is located, if it has spread, how well they’re responding to treatment, and what the likelihood is of their cancer returning. The QEII has the only PET-CT in Nova Scotia, which means we see patients from every community across our province.
Thanks to our donor community and the radiologists at the QEII’s Department of Diagnostic Imaging, and the Nova Scotia Health Authority, we’ve directly enabled the purchase of the most state-of-the-art PET-CT technology available: PET-CT with extended field-of-view. This best-in-class technology has now arrived at the QEII and is allowing teams to detect smaller traces of cancer than ever before.
Learn how more than $150,000 was raised by the community and QEII radiologists to fund best-in-class PET-CT with extended field-of-view.
