Maury Regional adds new technology to Cancer Center


COLUMBIA, Tenn. — Maury Regional Cancer Center in Columbia has expanded its imaging technology. The comprehensive Cancer Center now offers advanced PET, CT and PET/CT imaging services with the addition of the new Biograph mCT.

The Biograph mCT optimizes imaging that oncology physicians use to evaluate staging and monitoring of cellular activity over time and to assess treatment response. The new imaging system’s innovative dose-reduction technologies minimize patient exposure to radiation, while its fast scan times result in less patient motion to improve image quality and overall patient experience. The Biograph mCT can support patients up to 500 lbs. and is designed to reduce claustrophobia with its wider 78-cm bore. This new imaging technology will be available full-time and can be scheduled with a physician’s order.

Maury Regional Cancer Center is accredited by the Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons and the American College of Radiology. Physicians who treat cancer patients specialize in medical oncology, hematology and radiation oncology.

“Patients with cancer are often treated multiple days per week over a period of several weeks,” said Maury Regional Health CEO Alan Watson. “Our goal is to provide advanced cancer care and to enable patients to stay close to home rather than traveling to metropolitan areas. Expanding our PET services to five days a week and adding this new imaging equipment complements our current cancer-fighting technology and our commitment to exceptional patient care.”
