The first nuclear medicine centre opened in the Tomsk region

The Medical Institute named after Berezin Sergey (MIBS) has opened the region's first nuclear medicine centre (PET centre) in Tomsk, where oncological diseases will be diagnosed and treated using modern technology.

The document on the establishment of such an institution here was signed in 2016. A year later, construction began.

At the new centre, specialists will be engaged in cancer diagnosis, process staging, monitoring and evaluation of the effectiveness of treatment.

As explained by Sergey Zhvachkin, Governor of the Tomsk Region, the clinic will provide a full cycle of medical care for cancer diseases. A surgical complex will soon be opened here. He noted that local residents will be able to undergo check-ups at the PET centre under a compulsory health insurance policy.

According to Arkady Stolpner, Chairman of the Board of MIBS, a total of 600 million rubles has been invested in the creation of the centre - half of this amount has been allocated for construction and the same amount for equipment. He stressed that the institution has the most modern positron emission tomography machine, the latest MRI and ultrasound machines and more.

Previously, residents of the region had to travel to other regions of the country outside Siberia to undergo such examinations.
