Nuclear medicine center to be built in the Far East

The Minister of the Russian Federation for the Development of the Far East and the Arctic, Alexander Kozlov, and the head of the Republic of Buryatia, Alexey Tsydenov, discussed the creation of a center for nuclear medicine in Buryatia. The emergence of such an institution will allow early detection of oncological formation in patients and their treatment.

“The ministry always supports projects that are aimed at improving the quality of medicine. There is not even discussed, they are needed and important. The main thing is human health, ”said the head of the Ministry of Eastern and Eastern Development Alexander Kozlov.

A cyclotron for the production of radiopharmaceuticals and two PET / CT scanners will be built in the center to provide positron emission tomography research services. This will allow to conduct in Buryatia more than 7 thousand PET / CT studies per year.

“The project of the Center for Nuclear Medicine provides access to high-tech medicine, including oncology, which is very relevant for Buryatia. The task of simplifying access to modern high-tech medicine is set for all regions by Russian President Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin. The appearance of the Center for Nuclear Medicine in Buryatia will make it possible at the earliest stages to detect oncological formations and to treat them, not leading to serious, and in the worst cases, lethal consequences. Also, this center will allow much more efficient diagnosis of certain vascular diseases. It is especially important that services will be free for residents of the republic. The nearest such centers are in Krasnoyarsk and Khabarovsk, ”said the head of the Republic of Buryatia, Alexey Tsydenov.

It is discussed that the center will be built under a concession agreement concluded between the center of nuclear medicine of Ulan-Ude and the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Buryatia. The investor will design, build, equip and continue to provide medical services. Used on most of the study will be provided free of charge under the MLA, and only a small part - for a fee. The center should be built and put into operation after 2.5 years.

This organizational and legal scheme corresponds to the best practice for such projects and has already been successfully used in Russia for the construction of other PET centers (for example, PET centers have already been launched in the Moscow region).
