Integral PET Associates is joining forces with the University of Pennsylvania Cancer Center and Penn’s radiology department to extend its network of PET scanning centers. One of the largest cancer networks of its kind, the University of Pennsylvania Cancer Network is composed of 28 hospitals and a large medical oncology network. Plans call for opening as many as seven PET centers at UPCN community hospitals within the next six months. Each Penn PET center will have a fixed PET scanner. Additional sites in the future may have fixed or mobile scanners, depending on patient demand. University physicians will help interpret the PET scans and oversee the medical aspects of the PET centers; Integral PET will perform administrative functions. The alliance was forged to address the complex educational, financial, medical, functional, and operational concerns that accompany the installation and operation of PET centers in community-based settings.
