The center of nuclear medicine of the Siberian Research Clinical Centre under FMBA of Russia was built as a part of the projects approved by the Presidential Committee for Modernization and Technological Development of Russia’s Economy. The center consists of two buildings: the medical – the department of radionuclide therapy (DRNT), and diagnostic – the center of positron emission tomography (PET center). The buildings were commissioned in 2014.
The PET center provides high-tech diagnostics of oncological, cardiological and neurological diseases at an early stage. The DRNT provides treatment for thyroid cancer, hyperthyroidism, systemic radionuclide therapy for bone metastases of malignant tumors. For the treatment of prostate cancer at stage I-II in the department held interstitial radiotherapy with iodine-125 (brachytherapy). The design capacity of the PET Center is 3,300 patients per year, DRNT – 1,100 stationary and 500 outpatients per year. In the future it is planned to implement the project on construction of the center of proton therapy, thanks to which the region will receive a medical complex for the treatment of cancer at the advanced level which will be the only one to the east from the Ural Mountains.
