Your Impact - Great-West Life PET / CT Centre
Thanks to your support, the lower level of HSC Winnipeg’s Kleysen Institute for Advanced Medicine is home to the Great-West Life PET/CT scanner.
This advanced equipment has expanded HSC’s research programs and helped to attract top researchers and clinicians. It has also improved how we diagnose and treat patients, helping grow our already world-class nuclear medicine program.
The Great-West Life PET/CT Centre has also provided HSC with an economic advantage. Once, the isotopes needed to run these machines had to be imported from other provinces. But thanks to donors, those isotopes can now be created inside the Centre using the cyclotron. This new addition opened the door for other hospitals across Manitoba to secure PET scanners of their own.
