A new nuclear medicine service at CHPG

The establishment of this high-performance Nuclear Medicine Service following three years of work is part of a regional treatment strategy. The new technical facilities offer increasingly sensitive detection equipment and increasingly high resolution, making it possible to both scan and treat more conditions.

The new Nuclear Medicine Service was officially opened by H.S.H. the Sovereign Prince on Monday 28 September. H.E. the Minister of State, Pierre Dartout, President of the National Council Stéphane Valeri, Minister of Health and Social Affairs Didier Gamerdinger, Chair of the Board of Directors at the Centre Hospitalier Princesse Grace André Garino, Director of CHPG Benoîte de Sevelinges, Head of the Nuclear Medicine Service Professor Marc Faraggi and a number of other dignitaries were all in attendance.

The investment, totalling €8.2 million, was supported by the Prince’s Government as well as private donations made by the Tabor Foundation to the Friends of CHPG Foundation.

For patients, this offers a genuine benefit in that all nuclear medicine scans are now available at CHPG, with fully digital care thanks to a nuclear cardiology unit and two new, latest-generation positron emission tomography (PET) scanners featuring unparalleled image quality.
