Rīga Stradiņš University Nuclear Medicine Clinic

PET/CT is the one of most Innovative, Precise & Fast
Cancer Diagnostics methods

A leading medical institution of Latvia – Rīga Stradiņš University has founded the Nuclear Medicine Clinic to improve cancer diagnostics by PET/CT technology – most innovative and precise diagnostic method for detection of oncological diseases. Nuclear Medicine Clinic is trustworthy because it has designated the area of expertise and meets all European standards, incorporating all aspects of oncological radioisotope imaging for a wide range of malignant disease, including one of the newest and most specific radiotracer for prostate cancer diagnostics Ga-PSMA.

Rīga Stradiņš University Radiology Scientific laboratory is involved in the research of newest radiotracers of PET/CT technology and provides scientific support for the Clinic. The Cyclotron Complex at the Nuclear Medicine Clinic is very important for the quality of PET/CT examination, because PET/CT scan is carried out by using self-made radiopharmaceuticals, eliminating the need to acquire the necessary preparations from other manufacturers, thereby additionally guaranteeing compliance of the preparation with patient-specific needs.

The only new generation PET/CT scanner in Latvia!

Benefits & Features

NEW GENERATION PET/CT SCAN UNIQUE FEATURES

TIME of FLIGHT (ToF) technology, using very sensitive detectors that are not available on most other systems. This offers images of exceptional quality and shortest possible scan time.

64 SLICE CT provides the highest scan resolution and the best accuracy of the images.

OPENVIEW GANTRY enhances patient comfort providing easy patient access for clinicians, especially for pediatric and claustrophobic patients.

DOSE WISE and SMART BEAM MANAGEMENT encompasses a set of techniques, programs and practices that ensures optimal Image Quality while protecting people in the X-ray environments. The result is improved Image Quality at a significantly lower effective dose which contributes to the safety of patients and staff. This technology has been scientifically documented to reduce radiation dose.
