PET/CT facilities

The PET/CT department is located on Level 2 off the corridor heading to the Oncology/Radiotherapy department.

The scanner in the department is the GE Discovery TM 690 PET/CT system which is a 64 slice PET/CT scanner with time-of-flight technology.

A close collaboration has been formed with the Wolfson Brain Imaging Radiochemistry Department to supply Radiopharmaceuticals for research purposes. This allows the use of C-11 Radiopharmaceuticals which can be produced locally.

Owing to the need to manage capacity on this valuable resource we can only allow access to investigators whose projects have been approved in advance as being suitable for PET/CT by our Research Management Committee.

You will need to fill in and submit the form on the right hand side which will be considered by the committee which meets every month. A response will be provided within a week of the meeting. We welcome enquires for information and have a group of scientific and medical specialists who can help.
