Positron Emission Tomography (PET) is fast emerging as a new technology which finds wide applications in molecular imaging. PET is a valuable diagnostic and prognostic tool for investigations in Oncology, Neurosciences and Cardiology. BRIT operates the medical cyclotron facility (MCF) installed at Radiation Medicine Centre located at the Tata Memorial Centre, Parel.
Medical Cyclotron Facility is involved in the production, quality control and distribution of radiopharmaceuticals labelled with positron emitting short lived isotope of fluorine namely [18F]-flourine (half-life 109.7 minutes). PET radiopharmaceuticals like FDG18, FLT18, NAF18 and FMISO18 are produced and supplied to various hospitals equipped with PET technology in and around Mumbai.
