The Voxel Department of Nuclear Medicine is located in Teaching Hospital No. 5 in Katowice. It performs highly specialised positron emission tomography (PET-CT) scans and nuclear medicine (SPECT) scans, which are used in the diagnosis of cancer and neurological diseases, and enable both the planning of treatment and monitoring of its effects. Two-head gamma cameras for scintigraphic scans, both static and dynamic, allow - among other things - scintigraphy of the thyroid, parathyroid, kidney, skeleton, and lymphoscintigraphy, including the location of the sentinel lymph node. The laboratory is currently implementing a package of free tests for the inhabitants of the Province of Silesia. Patients are eligible for a PET-CT scan based on a referral from a medical specialist and medical documentation on the disease specified in the referral. The referral and documentation may be submitted to the laboratory in person, or sent by e-mail or fax. If you are interested in the test, please contact the laboratory.
