Medya Diagnostic Center is known for excellence in imaging services. We are proud that we were the first to establish PET/CT Scan technology for cancer diagnosis and staging in Iraq’s history. PET/CT Scan technology for cancer diagnosis and staging is available at Medya Diagnostic Center. The PET/CT Department is managed and supervised by a group of highly trained professionals with international expertise in nuclear medicine and radiological imaging. From the acquisition of the image to its interpretation, images are individually tailored to address the specific clinical concerns of the referring clinicians. The results of our PET/CT scan will provide superior diagnostic capabilities which help physicians make accurate and timely diagnoses.
Our PET/CT technologists and nuclear medicine physicians work closely together to obtain the best possible results for the patients and their referring physicians. This partnership means our patients can be reassured they are in the best hands for finding an accurate diagnosis, which in turn results in more effective treatment and better outcomes.
We use sophisticated PET/CT devices and the latest techniques to support our clinical teams in the diagnosis of the full range of medical problems.
PET/ CT SCAN Radioisotopes
F18-FDG is the most commonly used types of radiopharmaceutical in nuclear medicine clinical practice.
Bone Cancer Diagnosis
Unlike conventional bone scan procedures, sodium fluoride F18- NaF PET/CT provides an excellent bone image quality and higher accuracy.
Prostate Cancer Diagnosis
Fluorine labelled prostate-specific membrane antigen ligand F18-PSMA is a groundbreaking PET scan which is rapidly gaining popularity worldwide.
Other services in the PET/CT department
Our PET/CT technologists have extensive training and more than 20 years of international experience producing the highest quality diagnostic images.
Our images are interpreted and reviewed by trained, subspecialty nuclear medicine and radiologists. The PET/CT scan department is managed by a qualified group of UK and US-based nuclear medicine specialists.
Multiple Signed Reports
All PET/CT studies interpretations are performed by 2 nuclear medicine physicians in collaboration with a radiologist, working side by side to obtain the most accurate, reliable, and conclusive interpretation.
Our systems are frequently serviced and maintained by trained international engineers to ensure optimum system performance. This will ensure that our systems are functioning within manufacturer guidelines and specifications.
Pediatric, claustrophobic, and patients with special needs who cannot stay still in the device for the duration of the scan will be offered a free of charge anesthetic service provided by an anesthesia specialty medical doctor.
The Siemens Biograph 64 is a whole-body scanner ideal for oncological imaging and diagnosis with high-end spiral CT and PET performance using just one noninvasive procedure. The Siemens Biograph 6 produces excellent images that show three-dimensional anatomy and biological processes of organs at the molecular level with a large axial view. Significant x-ray dose reduction (up to 65%) is possible for all body regions.
We use Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS) to facilitate the communication between the technologists and the reporting radiologists to perform an excellent interpretation of the images/results.
