Find out more about PET/CT with Cobalt

We use a Siemens 128 mCT Flow Edge PET/CT scanner at our innovative Imaging Centre in Cheltenham.

This is one of only a few scanners of it's type in the UK, offering a larger bore, with 40% more space and unique 'flow technology' meaning the images are obtained whilst the scanner bed moves in a single continuous motion rather than conventional 'stop and go' imaging. All of this means shorter scanning times and a reduced radiation dose for patients.

We have over ten years experience in PET/CT scanning. Appointments are available with little or no wait time, with only five days from referral to double read radiology report for routine scans and urgent scans more quickly by arrangement. We have nine experienced reporting consultant radiologists led by Professor Iain Lyburn. We offer a flexible, high quality service for your self-pay patients or those with private medical insurance

Cobalt can offer the following PET/CT scans:

  • FDG
  • NaF
  • Choline
  • Amyvid
