The state-of-the-art PET-CT scanner, which will be donated to the Memorial Children's Hospital in Warsaw, was bought at the 54th edition of Open Tender. The device, worth PLN 16 000 000 will be the first digital PET-CT scanner used to diagnose children in Poland.

We want to express our gratitude for the PET-CET Scanner. The device combines two types of tomography - positron emission (PET) and computer tomography (CT). Our specialist will receive information about the exact location of the disease, and they are then able to tailor their response accordingly. They will be able to discover the source of the disease and to check if the treatment is making progress. It will be the first scanner of this type entirely available at a paediatric clinic in the country.
