Baptist Medical Park – Nine Mile Offers Most Sensitive Cancer Imaging System Available


PENSACOLA, Fla. (Jan. 29, 2020) – The Baptist Medical Park – Nine Mile outpatient nuclear medicine department is now equipped with the area’s only five-ring new positron emission tomography – computed tomography (PET/CT) scanner, the most sensitive cancer imaging system available.

The GE Healthcare Discovery TM IQ’s five-ring system cuts scan time in half with less radiation exposure than other PET/CT scanners. Faster scans enhance patient comfort.

A PET scan can detect changes in the body on a cellular level, which enables doctors to identify a disease in its earliest stages. A combined PET/CT scan provides a special view that provides more precise information and more accuracy.

All PET/CT scans previously performed at Baptist Hospital will now be done at Baptist Medical Park – Nine Mile which offers easier access and more parking.
