The new PET/CT scanner at the Met Campus of Windsor Regional Hospital is now open to patients.

The machinery was put into place in late April inside a trailer that is now attached to the adjacent Cancer Centre on the south side of Met Campus.

The PET/CT scans will support around 600 patients a year in the Windsor-Essex region meaning they will no  longer have to travel hundreds of kilometres to hospitals in London, Hamilton, Mississauga and elsewhere.

“We are proud to officially open our PET/CT scanner facility,” said Monica Staley Liang, Regional Vice-President, Cancer Services, Renal, Patient Relations and Legal Affairs. “Today is the culmination of many months of hard work in planning for the installation, training and opening involving physicians and staff from multiple departments and teams. Congratulations to everyone for their efforts to make this project a reality.”
