PET Centre, St Thomas’ Hospital, Lambeth, London
This project comprises of the full Mechanical electrical Plumbing (MEP) works to the new PET Centre Facility including Medical Gases and a new nuclear grade ductwork installation
Located in Lambeth, London, the PET (Positron Emission Tomography) is an imaging technique that produces a three-dimensional image of functional processes in the body. Combining PET with CT (Computed Tomography) or MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) allows for hybrid imaging, which is increasingly being used particularly with cancer patients.
The PET Centre Redevelopment Project is a joint major investment by King’s College London and Guy’s and St Thomas’ Trust to revolutionise PET Imaging facilities at St. Thomas’ Hospital. Phase One is now complete. Phase Two involves the construction works associated with the installation of a second cyclotron acceleration plant, hot cells and associated equipment capable of producing a range of imaging tracers to enable enhanced diagnostic care and improved research capability. The facility will be based in the space vacated by the original PET facility on the lower ground floor of the hospital.
