Great news for patients in Windsor and Essex County.  Yesterday, the Ministry of Health and Long-term Care announced plans to add a positron-emission tomography (PET) machine to the WRH nuclear medicine department.

WATCH: March 1, 2018 – PET Scan Announcement

In the past, some patients had to travel out of town to for the scan.  The new machine – pictured below – means those patients can get diagnosed faster and closer to home.


The PET will be located at the Met campus and is expected to be fully operational in late 2018.  This will be the first provincial funded PET/CT scanner in Ontario, with a price tag of about $3.5 million.

David Musyj, President and CEO of Windsor  Regional Hospital, says, “It’s an exciting time for Windsor Regional Hospital.”
