Yashoda Hospitals at Somajiguda in Hyderabad has incorporated an advanced artificial intelligence-based integrated PET/CT scanner to detect advanced stage cancers among patients.

Making use of AI technology, the PET CT scanner will provide the best quality images with reduced scanning duration and lesser radiation dose.

“The new scanner is now two times faster than the old generation scanners primarily due to the advanced technology,” said Dr Lingaiah Amidayala, director of medical services, Yashoda Hospitals Group.

The combined PET/CT scan merges PET and CT images and provides detailed information about the size, shape and differentiating cancerous lesions from normal structures with accuracy.

Apart from the newly upgraded imaging of FDG PET/CT, the hospital provides advanced and rare imaging tools like Ga-68 DOTA, Ga-68 PSMA, 18F DOPA PET/CTs, DAT imaging & WBC scans.
