Help reboot our Nuclear Medicine Department
North York General’s Nuclear Medicine Department serves newborns to centenarians. Patients with serious health concerns, such as cancer and heart disease, count on the Nuclear Medicine Department to provide essential tests that lead to early diagnosis and better health outcomes. As the population in the community continues to grow and age, the need for nuclear medicine tests at NYGH will only increase.
We have a bold plan to replace the fleet of aging nuclear imaging equipment with advanced new technology to meet the growing needs of the communities we serve. We’ll start the reboot with our most pressing need — replacing an end-of-life gamma camera with a new one that has SPECT/CT. This advanced new technology will show how an organ is functioning and its exact location. Eventually we plan to replace all three of our aging gamma cameras.
“One of the challenges we face is that our fleet of nuclear medicine cameras are more than 16 years old. New technology allows us to obtain incredibly accurate and detailed images, with patients receiving lower radiation doses and better diagnoses.”
— Dr. Ryan Margau, Chief Radiologist and Medical Director, Department of Medical Imaging
