||CleanInsights for new PET/CT Users||Planning for the purchase and installation of PET/CT can be a big step for any medical center, whether you're a major academic institution, a world renowned research facility, or a community hospital that wants to bring world class health care closer to home. Craven Regional Medical Center falls into the third category. It is a midsized hospital in New Bern, North Carolina, that serves the state's Atlantic coastal region. When a group of staff members at Craven started investigating PET/CT, they knew that the process of acquiring one would call for a significant commitment.||25/10/07||Gratis||Ver en iTunes|
||CleanMobile PET/CT concepts||Adding a mobile PET/CT service is a very straightforward way to bring the capabilities of PET/CT to a community hospital setting. The question is: would it be the right solution for your facility?||25/10/07||Gratis||Ver en iTunes|
||CleanMedical oncology and PET/CT||The improvements offered by PET/CT can touch many of the critical treatment decisions in a patient's cancer treatment.

||CleanRadiation oncology and PET/CT||If a radiation oncologist wants to compare PET/CT with the use of CT alone for radiation therapy planning, there are a number of research projects to help in the comparison. The findings of several projects suggest that up to 45 percent of cases experience a change in treatment plan as a result of the extra clinical insight of PET/CT. In other words, nearly half of the cases planned with conventional CT would be treated differently if PET/CT were used on the case.||25/10/07||Gratis||Ver en iTunes|
||CleanFinancing your PET/CT||When a discussion turns to the possibility of acquiring a PET/CT, it's only natural for one question to come to mind. The question is: how much does it cost? The answer that everyone expects is a dollar figure. But offering up a purchase price would be only the beginning of the true answer.||25/10/07||Gratis||Ver en iTunes|
||CleanSurgical planning and PET/CT||The idea of implementing PET/CT in a community hospital cancer program brings many questions to mind for the surgeon who serves as part of an oncology team. Surgeons have wondered how PET/CT can influence the relationship between chemotherapy, radiation therapy and surgical resection in cancer treatment. What impact will it have on staging, and will it affect re-staging after surgery? What about effects in biopsy. Will PET/CT offer new approaches in targeting tissue for biopsy?||25/10/07||Gratis||Ver en iTunes|
||CleanMoving from CT to PET/CT||How old is your hospital's CT scanner? In many community hospitals, the CT is old enough and slow enough that an upgrade would make a difference and an upgrade to PET/CT could make an even bigger difference.||25/10/07||Gratis||Ver en iTunes|
