The Grand Orchestra on a great cause

The treatment of cancer at an early stage is an integral part of an effective fight against cancer. For this, however, it requires equipment that enables precise diagnosis and the least invasive therapy possible. Such a device, thanks to the funds collected by the GOCC, will go to the Children’s Memorial Health Institute in Warsaw, informed on Wednesday. The new equipment will cost nearly PLN 16m.

The PET-CT equipment, as it is referred to, enables targeted therapy to be carried out after the diagnosis of cancer outbreaks. Siemens Healthineers was chosen to carry out this task.

New equipment and conducting examinations

It is worth noting that, on the basis of the Ordinance on the definition of the conditions for the conclusion and implementation of contracts for the provision of healthcare services such as outpatient specialist care, the rules for accounting for the oncological package have changed since 1 October 2019. The regulations made it possible to carry out PET-CT examination as part of in-depth diagnostics and to account for it as part of the package.

The diagnostic examinations on the new apparatus will be financed by the Children’s Memorial Health Institute as part of the National Health Fund. The equipment is to enable treatment of children in the least invasive way possible.
