This new unit is equipped with the most up-to-date and sophisticated instrumentation that exists in the speciality of Nuclear Medicine.
Hospital Clínica Benidorm has acquired a latest generation Tomography gamma camera fitted with a dual detector and CT scanner and a multislice (16 slice) PET-CT scanner – the biggest breakthrough in the diagnosis of cancer diseases.
The combination of PET’s morphological image and CT’s functional image has turned the hybrid PET-CT into the methodology recommended by most oncology experts.
The two Nuclear Medicine systems that have been installed in Hospital Clínica Benidorm enable the detection and monitoring of diseases such as malign tumours, response to cancer treatments, detection of sentinel (lymph) nodes, ischaemic heart disease, Alzheimer’s, bone injuries in athletes, renal diseases in children and adults, pulmonary thrombosis (embolism), thyroid and parathyroid, epilepsies that don’t respond to treatment, etc. It also allows us to carry out other activities that are of great use for the patient such as planning radiotherapy sessions or surgery in anatomically complex areas.
All of this guarantees a non invasive, reliable technology that is comfortable for patients and highly sensitive to detecting lesions.
Therapeutically speaking, patients with hyperthyroidism, arthritis, lymphoma, carcinoid tumours and metastatic bone pain will notice the benefits.
This state-of-the-art technology places us on the cutting edge in clinical care, not only in our own country, but also in the European Community.
Our first and foremost concern, however, continues to focus on a humanised patient care approach. This, we believe, is our best investment.
We always do the best we can because we believe that a step forward in technology means a step forward in protecting your health.
