P.E.T / Radiology Suite - Christchurch Radiology Group
This positron emission tomography (PET) facility is the first purpose built facility in the South Island.
This positron emission tomography (PET) facility is the first purpose built facility in the South Island. The building is a first floor extension to the existing radiology department and contains a PET/CT suite, five uptake rooms and a hotlab, along with associated administration facilities. Extensive consultation with nuclear physists to achieve a robust flow has resulted in an outcome that is now regarded as a benchmark for similar facilities.
Due to extensive damage following the Christchurch earthquakes, the ground floor space required extensive remediation. The challenge was to maintain a fully operational hospital while extensive construction works were undertaken.
The newly completed facility now offers a MRI suite, three X-ray rooms, four ultrasound suites, a screening room, associated change facilities, three Radiologist spaces and associated administration and staff facilities.
