  • 'Zero' radiation exposure makes PET MR a safe modality for pediatric evaluation.

  • Determines the effectiveness of the treatment.

  • Less scan time, thereby reducing patient discomfort significantly.

  • Replaces multiple medical testing procedures with a single examination.

  • Determines the extent of the disease in the human body.

  • The PET-CT facility being equipped with state-of-the-art 427 slice/sec CT scanner, Ultra HDPET with highly specialized 4D respiratory Gating software is a boon for cancer patients as the radiotherapists would be able to deliver highly precise radiation dose, synchronized with patients' breathing pattern.

    Addressing the media, Dr. Prathap C Reddy, Chairman, Apollo Hospitals Group said, "First to bring PET SUITE to South Asia, Apollo Hospitals Group continues to deliver on its promise to bring the most advanced in patient care. It's a tremendous leap forward in imaging capabilities. Our highly trained doctors will now use one of the world's most advanced combination scanners which will give them highly defined, 3-D images, enabling them to make the best choices about treatments across specialties. And since PET MR is a system that can simultaneously acquire data across the whole body, the scanning takes less time thereby reducing the patient discomfort. As MR has no radiation, the PET MR significantly reduces overall radiation dose, making it safer for paediatrics and patients undergoing repeated studies for therapy monitoring."

    The advantages of the PET MR system would be its superior quality images with better soft tissue contrast, leading to better localization and characterization of lesions. Other than its application in cancer, PET MR will play a greater role in understanding various disease processes in cardiology and neurological diseases. Its 'zero' radiation exposure
