For those facing cancer today, swift access to the best diagnostic technology is potentially life-saving. Treatment is difficult, and can be a source of anxiety and uncertainty for patients and families. PET/CT is proven as the most effective tool for obtaining a complete picture of a patient’s cancer, with an ability to detect cancer cells at an early stage – even before a tumour has formed. Currently, the BC Cancer Vancouver Centre operates two PET/CT scanners that serve thousands of people undergoing cancer treatment each year in our province. We have the opportunity to bring a cutting-edge new PET/CT scanner to replace one at the end of its life-span, allowing our doctors to deliver more sophisticated, accurate and adaptable technology to benefit patients. Today’s cutting-edge PET/CT scanners have far-reaching capabilities, including: outstanding image resolution to capture even the smallest cancer cells up to two times improvement in accuracy and image quality three times faster speed, meaning greater efficiency and patient safety With your help to raise $1 million, B.C. can bring the most advanced technology to cancer patients. Your generous support will contribute to the health of British Columbians and bring new hope to families affected by cancer.
