Memphis Radiological, P.C. is a proud partner with Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare and are excited to share that Methodist University Hospital's state-of-the-art digital PET/CT scanner is now installed in the Shorb Tower and is currently scheduling patients.
As the newest PET/CT scanner in the Mid-South, patie0nts will be scanned on a PET/CT scanner similar to that of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. This new scanner features Q-clear digital technology. With Q-Clear technology, there is reduced background noise and improved detectability of smaller lesions. This allows for more accurate cancer detection and staging. Not only is this technology better for cancer staging, this new scanner allows for shorter exam times which improves patient comfort, reduces patient motion, and results in improved exam quality. To ensure that patients not only receive the best imagining available, all exams are interpreted by Board Certified Radiologists with advanced training in PET interpretation.
