Digital radiography news The Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, in Commack, NY, has recently purchased a new PET/CT scanner.

PET/CT system works by combining two separate images of body tissues. The combination provides doctors with highly-detailed images showing both, healthy and abnormal cells. Before combining PET and CT into a single system, patients had to move between two separate PET and CT machines for scans, which usually resulted in a difference between the generated images.

The new PET/CT system at the  Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center will help radiologists evaluate patients after receiving radiotherapy for cancer. The Cancer Center, as an outpatient facility, will also use the new PET/CT to provide faster scanning of patients. Patients will no longer need to stay overnight at any hospital to undergo scans.

Dr. Arthur Fruauff, Co-director of the PET/CT scan at the Sloan-Kettering Commack Center, explained, “With the new scanner, the patients here are getting a lot of directed care with doctors who are very familiar with their cases. They don’t have to go to the hospital to get their tests done.”

With the new PET/CT system, the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center is now one of a very limited number of facilities offering such an imaging technology in Long Island.
