 State of the Art Scanner in Delhi Hospital Providing Accurate Diagnosis for Cancer, Heart Patients

A hospital in New Delhi revealed that its state-of-the-art high-end scanner machine is helping doctors provide the right and accurate diagnosis to patients with cancer and heart ailments.

The Positron Emission Tomography-Computed Tomography (PET/CT) scans set up at BLK Super Speciality Hospital gives an accurate diagnosis from staging to assessing the treatment response in both cancer and coronary artery disease.


"The Positron Emission Tomography-Computed Tomography (PET/CT) machine helps in assessing treatment response during chemotherapy and also prevents unnecessary bypass surgeries in heart patients by detecting the viable and non-viable myocardium (muscular tissue of the heart)," a statement from the hospital said.

According to the doctors, scanning takes less time, thus reducing the discomfort to the patient.

"We have many cases where patients suffer due to wrong diagnosis in their early stage of the treatment but with the launch of this machine, patients would now get right and accurate diagnosis along with the treatment," Praneet Kumar, chief executive officer, BLK Super Speciality Hospital said.
