A state-of-the-art PET/CT system with revolutionary FlowMotion technology is housed at Greenslopes Private Hospital.
The Siemens Biograph mCT Flow 64 provides doctors with even greater ability to detect and monitor a range of conditions. The technology is based on a single continuous motion, rather than stop-and-go technology, which reduces the imaging time for patients.
It is used for the staging and restaging of most cancers including lung, colorectal, prostate and breast cancer. Some PET tracers can also detect osteoblastic processes and the presence of amyloid plaques in the brain, which are indicators of Alzheimer’s disease.
The PET/CT scanner and associated equipment are housed in a Queensland X-Ray facility, located on the Lower Ground level of the Administration Building at Greenslopes Private Hospital.
