PROTON THERAPY CENTER - Diagnostic Services


Diagnostic Services

Aside from proton therapy, we also offer a full range of specialized examination methods with the latest
technology on the market. We provide CT (Computed Tomography), MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) and PET/CT (an examination combining both Positron Emission Tomography and Computed Tomography), together with additional equipment for generating a virtual simulation. Images from these technologies are combined together to form an irradiation treatment plan. We accept patients from other facilities abroad.

Computed Tomography (CT)

Type: GE LightSpeed VCT

A radiological examination using X-rays for internal imaging. Our center is equipped with a new model - Light Speed VCT (64) by GE Healthcare. This is a unique technology which allows for optimization of the
radiation dose and rapid image processing.

We provide all forms of general CT examinations:

• head, neck, chest, stomach, small pelvis, spinal cord and skeleton
• CT interoclysis
• CT colonoscopy
• CT angiographic examination
• CT perfusion

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MR)

Type: GE Signa 1.5T HDxt Adv. Plus 16ch

Magnetic resonance is a non-invasive method for imaging inner organs utilising a powerful magnetic field and electromagnetic waves of a high frequency. In contrast with CT, there is no risk of irradiation. Our center is equipped with a GE Signa 1.5T HDXT by GE Healthcare.

We offer the following MRI examinations:

• head, neck, chest, stomach, pelvis, joints and limbs
• Breast MRI
• MRCP (Magnetic Resonance Cholangiopancreatography)
• Magnetic Resonance Angiography (MRA)
• Prostate MRI


Examination Combining Computed Tomography and Positron Emission Tomography (PET/CT)

Type: Discovery_PET/CT_600_spotlight2

This is one of the most precise and sensitive ways of imaging in contemporary nuclear medicine for both
primary staging of oncological tumors, and for examinations following treatment (as well as for regular
check-ups). Our center is equipped with a Discovery PET/CT 600 by GE Healthcare, which is currently one of the most sensitive PET/CT scanners on the market.

We offer the following PET/CT examinations:

• PET/CT of torso with FDG and IV contrast
• PET/CT of torso with FDG and PO contrast
• PET/CT focused examination with FDG (specifically for lung and ENT areas)
• PET/CT of torso with FCh
• PET/CT of skeleton with NaF
• PET/CT of brain with FDG
• PETCT of brain with FLT

Conditions for Accepting Patients

For providing diagnostic services to patients from other facilities we require complete medical documentation including scans, specification of the examination required, a short case history of the current disease including treatment information, former surgical procedures, examinations etc.
