PET CT Scan

With the only PET-CT scan machine in the entire Kanpur region, Regency Healthcare’s cancer centre has an edge over others. A hybrid device, PET-CT has revolutionized the face of medical diagnosis by the amalgamation of functional information obtained by PET and structural details of CT scan to provide precise and localized results.

A PET-CT scan not only helps in detecting disease early-on but also determines the best treatment possible. This is especially true in the case of cancer wherein a PET-CT can check the metabolic activities of cancerous cells to determine whether they are spreading to other areas of the body or being contained. This would help to decipher the response of a particular treatment on a patient’s body and decide whether a different technique should be used.
Even a single imaging session can help in revealing crucial information regarding the structure and functioning of cells and tissues within the human body. Other than cancer, a PET-CT scan can also detect heart disease and brain disorders such as tumor, seizures and Alzheimer’s disease.

Patient testimonials

Here’s what our patients have to say about our services..

My partner and I visited the Regency City Clinic in Kanpur following several failed fertility treatments at an earlier fertility clinic for high oestrogen levels. The staff members were very professional and empathetic. The preliminary visit resulted in a gynaecological test, that led to the early diagnosis of a mild ovarian dermoid cyst. Following the removal of the cyst, we were successful in our first IVF trial. I have been blessed with a baby boy 2 months ago. Thank you, Regency!

I was very apprehensive about being diagnosed with painful stones in my kidney. I was afraid of undergoing surgery. After, meeting with renal specialists at Regency, I found out that every stone does not require an operation. With modern techniques of ESWL (Lithotripsy) PCNL & URS, which are non-invasive, I finally got rid of the stones for all times.

I came to Regency Hospital, Kanpur for the treatment of my liver condition. We learned about Regency through friends in my workplace. The team at Regency provided me with top-notch service and personalized attention, much more than I expected. The staff is very helpful and cooperative. I already have and will surely recommend this remarkable health institution to my family and friends in the future.

I had terrible pelvic pain from the last 6-7 months, and that’s when I was diagnosed with ovarian cysts. Thinking and reading about the cysts made me horrified, but I wanted to cure myself as soon as possible. My aunt, being a doctor herself, recommended Regency Hospital for the treatment of my cysts, and I went ahead with her opinion. From one month, I have been regular with my periods, I have no pelvic pain and I have gotten rid of the cysts. Thanks, Regency!
