Last year, Medical Imaging of Fredericksburg (MIF) installed a leading-edge advanced PET/CT unit at their Fredericksburg location. The proprietary technology in the new unit facilitates the assessment of the location, extent, and severity of disease with a speed and accuracy that did not previously exist. This higher level of imaging and diagnostic accuracy is accomplished with an even lower dose of radiation than traditional scans.
For patients with metal implants, it has the capability of producing a clear picture, reducing or even eliminating the visual disruptions that would occur in other PET/CT units. The higher quality images are processed faster which enables clinicians to diagnose cancer earlier, thus facilitating the most effective and targeted treatment strategies possible.
