Moving and static imaging for Nuclear Medicine

Moving and static imaging for Nuclear Medicine

In 2019, Big C awarded an equipment grant of £38,054 to the Department of Nuclear Medicine at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital so that two rooms in this facility could be equipped with moving and static image LED ceiling panels and also equipped with a built in media unit to offer music and radio.

Half of people who are undergoing radiotherapy treatment have either been diagnosed or treated for cancer. For their treatment, patients receive a tracer injection prior to undergoing their scans. The waiting time between having the tracer injection and your scan depends on the type of scan and varies from a few minutes to six hours. The scan itself can take up to between 15 minutes and two hours.

By providing this grant, the patient experience can be improved during these long waits, giving comfort to patients and a much needed distraction.

Big C invested in this project to help improve the patient experience at the hospital during a time which can be difficult for those undergoing cancer treatment.

What will you do to make a difference?

Two men from Norfolk who found themselves with cancer and having to travel for treatment, vowed local people would have access to the best treatment and support … and in 1980 the Big C Appeal was formed.
