New PET-CT Service Opening November 2017 at Qscan Northlakes & Qscan Hobart

22/10/2017

With great pride, Qscan Radiology Clinics announces the opening of their state-of-the-art PET-CT and oncology imaging service at Northlakes, Brisbane and Hobart, Tasmania.

PET-CT (Positron Emission Tomography-Computed Tomography) facilitates early and more accurate detection of tumours, reducing the need for unnecessary surgery and increasing survival rates.

The latest scanner from Siemens has been chosen for both the Qscan Northlakes & Qscan Hobart locations because of its unparalleled image quality, lowest radiation dose and optimised patient safety and comfort.   State-of-the-art technology reinforces Qscan’s reputation for excellence in imaging.  Our team at Qscan is continually striving to improve the level of service to our patients, referrers and the community.

PET-CT is a premium technology with very significant clinical benefits for early detection and staging a variety of cancers.  PET-CT can detect and monitor cancer and other diseases due to the significantly increased sensitivity and clarity of images.  It will also significantly improve the treatment and provide more accurate tumour detection, as well as reduce the need for unnecessary surgery.

All patients with Medicare eligible indications will be bulk billed, and scans interpreted by Qscan’s focussed team of highly trained subspecialty oncologic radiologists.
