PET Centre BIONT – as an outpatient healthcare facility of nuclear medicine performs diagnostic examinations using positron, as well as classical radiopharmaceuticals. The main equipment of the centre consists of PET/CT tomographs Philips Gemini TF64 and GE Discovery LS, and a SPECT/CT gamma camera GE MilleniumVG Hawkeye for coincidence imaging.
All of the devices allow for a combination of functional and metabolic imaging with a CT scan in one examination. This unique, hybrid imaging method undoubtedly leads to more accurate and improved examinations. Our facility introduced the first device of this type in the Slovak Republic already in 2005. The methods of nuclear medicine are used predominantly in the diagnostics of oncological, cardiovascular, and neurological diseases.
