Molecular imaging and nuclear medicine are functional imaging techniques based on the administration of radiopharmaceuticals enabling the evaluation of certain specific functions of the organism.
These radiopharmaceuticals emit radiation that can be detected by two types of cameras used in nuclear medicine called PET (Positron Emission Tomography) and SPECT (Single Photon Emission Computerized Tomography).
Nuclear medicine equipment of the latest generation are associated with a CT scanner making it possible to obtain so-called fusion images (PET / CT or SPECT / CT) which increases their capacity of localization.
Has your doctor prescribed a PET/CT molecular imaging, SPECT/CT hybrid imaging or conventional nuclear medicine investigation, or perhaps a bone densitometry or an outpatient therapy ?
The Molecular Imaging Centre in Geneva is equipped with a PET/CT camera, two SPECT/CT cameras and a bone densitometer of the latest generation to offer you high quality imaging services in particular in oncology, radiotherapy planning, nuclear cardiology, osteoarticular imaging and measurement of the bone density. The centre is also authorised to perform outpatient therapies.
