Early diagnosis of cancer and heart diseases with PET-MR

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MR) is an imaging system that provides information about organs and tissues in the human body without the use of radioactive materials. Positron Emission Tomography (PET) is an imaging system that uses radioactive materials to examine the functions of tissues and organs in the body. Thanks to the PET-MR technology, which emerged with the development of these two technologies, more detailed information can be obtained in cancer cases.


PET-CT and MR imaging methods, which are used separately in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases, were combined. 3D PET-MR technology, which combines these two methods in a single device, provides very important advantages in the early diagnosis and treatment of diseases such as cancer, Alzheimer's, dementia and heart infarction. 

Thanks to this device, it is possible to stage cancers correctly and to detect even the smallest cancer spreads that cannot be detected by other methods. The method, which allows early diagnosis in Alzheimer's and dementia, also provides advantages in the diagnosis of prostate cancer. The radioactive material used for imaging the brain in PET-CT can also glow in brains without tumor problems, which can lead to misdiagnosis. 

The same goes for the kidneys, bladder and pancreas. The new system, which combines PET-CT and MR in a single device, is extremely important in terms of accurate diagnosis, and also offers the possibility of precise diagnosis of cancer in the form of a point-and-shoot.

What are the advantages of PET-MR extraction?

Fighting cancer diseases is a tiring and time-consuming process for patients, as well as for health institutions and health professionals who provide treatment services to them, and their relatives. Patients who have to undergo many tests and examinations due to their diseases have difficulty in enduring this exhausting process. 

Thanks to the successful work of the technology world in the field of medicine, the use of systems and methods that shorten this tiring process in favor of patients also saves time in treatment. Thanks to the scans made with PET-MR devices, detailed information about the dimensions, stages and other details of the diseases is obtained. 

A very small amount of radioactive material is given to the patient through the vein and the shooting is performed. It can be determined whether the tumor formed in the body has spread beyond the organ and spread to other organs. Tumors in the bodies of pediatric patients are investigated, and it is possible to obtain detailed information on this subject.

The rate of radiation exposure is reduced by 70 percent

In this method, which is applied for the early diagnosis of cancer, Alzheimer's and heart diseases, the radiation rate of the patients decreases by 70 percent. This is especially important for children and young patients. This technology, which is also used effectively in Alzheimer's, dementia and heart diseases, gives the chance to catch Alzheimer's and dementia at a very early stage. 

Early diagnosis of diseases contributes to the economy of both individuals and countries. Thus, unnecessary surgical procedures and drug treatments are prevented. Due to the application of some surgical operations, some problems that will develop in the later periods are also prevented. Patients stay away from the problems that develop due to long-term hospitalization and long-term drug use.
