  • Planar/SPECT will still have a role but the balance will shift to PET
  • PET/CT imaging is incredible: high radiotracer sensitivity, vastly superior spatial & temporal resolution, fully tomographic, fast, non-invasive quantitation, multi-slice CT correlationPET is our strength: we should embrace it to further improve clinical diagnosis and direct appropriate managementCost base has reduced substantially and in real terms is certainly cheaperWe now perform a whole range of routine studies, from renal, V/Q to Indium on our PET scannersUnfortunately we can’t access the same rebateUrgent need for substitutional funding
