About Us

Background

The Department of Nuclear Medicine & Positron Emission Tomography aims at providing the most comprehensive and highest quality Positron Emission Tomography/Computerized Tomography(PET/CT), Positron Emission Tomography/Magnetic Resonance Imaging(PET/MRI), Nuclear medicine, Radionuclide therapy and Radiopharmaceutical dispensing services to the community.

First Comprehensive Nuclear Medicine Facility in Hong Kong
In addition to diagnostic services, our department is the only centre in Hong Kong that incorporates a unique facility to provide a full spectrum of Radionuclide Therapy services for treatment of cancer and metabolic diseases. Scope of treatment services include Iodine-131 for thyrotoxicosis, Iodine-131 for thyroid cancer ablation, Iodine-131 MIBG for neuroendocrine tumor, Lutetium-177 Dotatate for neuroendocrine tumor, Strontium-89 Chloride for bone metastases palliation, Radium-223 Dichloride for bone metastases of prostate cancer, Yttrium-90 Microspheres for liver cancer, and Ytrrium-90 Zevalin radioimmunotherapy for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.

First clinical PET Centre in China and Asia
Inaugurated in 1999, we are well known to be the first and always the leading clinical PET centre in China and Asia. Back then it comprised a CTI RDS III medical cyclotron; a radiopharmacy laboratory and a Siemens ECAT Exact BGO dedicated PET scanner for PET scanning service. Most of the PET scans were related to the oncology cases, and there were also some neurological applications including autism and Parkinson cases. Currently we are the only non-FDG production centre in Hong Kong, providing non-FDG scans for patients in need. Those tracers are widely used in targeting certain specific types of cancer and neurologic diseases. As the carbon-11 and nitrogen-13 labelled non-FDG radiotracers are too short-lived for delivery, patients of other local PET/CT centres are referred to our Hospital for better imaging. While some centres are now experimenting with tracer production, we, as the pioneer in local PET services, maintain a solid lead with continuous upgrades in knowledge, equipment and techniques.
