PET-CT Scanner

Help us change and save lives at Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham! We need your support to put Birmingham on the map!

We are launching a multi-million-pound fundraising appeal to fund a state-of-the-art PET-CT Scanner for the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham.

We are a centre of excellence for cancer care in the West Midlands and currently see thousands of patients. We need to raise £2.4 million to purchase a PET-CT Scanner that will transform the care we are able to provide our patients.

Unlocking New Possibilities

The PET-CT scanner allows us to diagnose patients quicker, the faster they are treated the greater the chance we will save their life.

The scanner will also cut waiting times, ensuring we are able to provide the best and most efficient care possible. We all know how daunting it can be waiting for a hospital appointment. The introduction of this PET-CT Scanner will reduce the amount of anxiety and fear as patients will be seen more quickly.

How PET-CT Scans Help Us See Function

Beyond Images: How PET-CT scans help us see function

A PET-CT scanner differs from other scanners because it allows our staff to see how parts of the body are working, rather than showing what they look like as a still image. They are particularly useful for investigating cancer cases, to determine how far the cancer has spread and how well it is responding to treatment. The scans produce a 3D image of the inside of the body so our staff can determine the best care plan. Another possible benefit of being diagnosed sooner is that a patient's treatment plan could be less invasive.

Not Just Cancer: Unveiling the Potential for Alzheimer's

This appeal could also lead to ground-breaking advancements as the PET-CT scanner could be used in new and innovative ways not just for cancer patients, but also for the possibility of diagnosing early Alzheimer’s disease. Alzheimer's affects an estimated 1 in 14 people over the age of 65 and 1 in every 6 people over the age of 80. Being able to be diagnosed earlier will open up the possibility of being entered into cutting-edge clinical trials quicker, not only improving their quality of life but could also lead to research breakthroughs that could revolutionise treatment for patients up and down the country.
