Pet-Scan (Pet-CT) in Turkey price & reviews

PET Scan & cancers

PET Scan is an innovative and extremely sensitive technique in medical imaging. It is the combination of a camera “positron emission tomography” (PET) and a scanner (Scan) in a single PET-Scan device to visualize metabolic processes in the body as well as anatomical sections of the last.

A product called a tracer is administered intravenously, the action of this tracer can be monitored using PET. One of the tracers used in prostate cancer is gallium 68.

How it works ?

PET scan with Gallium68 and Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer is a common and serious condition. This can lead to death. But if treatment is started at an early stage the prognosis becomes better. Hence the usefulness of a complementary examination which guides therapeutic management.

What are the Properties of Gallium 68/68 Ga in Istanbul?

The Gallium-68 pet-ct scanner is a tool for the care of low or intermediate grade neuroendocrine tumors, mainly to make treatment decisions with the early detection of small lesions that have an impact on treatment plans.

A Gallium-68 PET / CT scanner that shows no signs of disease beyond a primary tumor and resealable metastatic cancer would support an aggressive surgical approach instead of using systemic therapies if more diseases are seen.

In addition, the results of the Ga-68 PET / CT scanner can help predict response to treatments that depend on somatostatin receptors.

Gallium 68 does not replace the essential role of computed tomography and MRI for disease surveillance.

68Ga is obtained by means of a generator. It has a short half-life of 68 minutes. Be aware that the cost is a bit high and it is often not reimbursed by medical insurance. Rest assured, the price of this type of medical imaging is cheaper in Turkey and Istanbul than in other countries in Europe.

What is special about this Treatment during Prostate Cancer?

Our target is the prostate specific membrane antigen (PSMA) which is a transmembrane protein. Its expression is increased by cancer cells during the tumor process. The principle consists in associating a radioisotope tracer, 68Ga, with a PSMA inhibitor and its degradation is detected by means of a PET camera to detect cancer cells having an increased expression of PSMA. After intravenous injection of Galium 68, wait one hour before taking the images.

In practical terms, most of the applications relate to patients who present with a recurrence after surgical treatment of prostate cancer.
