Innovative new diagnostic procedure for prostate cancer
Innovation is very important to us at Aleris. We are therefore we proud to be the first in Scandinavia to start using a new and promising method for the diagnosis of prostate cancer.
Prostate-Specific Membrane Antigen (PSMA) is the latest generation tracer used in PET/CT scans for prostate cancer diagnosis, and we can now offer this at Aleris. The method is already in use at many European hospitals. It has produced promising results with regard to identifying cancer that has spread to other parts of the body (metastasised). When cancer cells absorb the tracer, they give off small amounts of radiation which can be detected during a PET/CT scan. This makes it possible to capture an image of and describe the extent of the cancer.

Aleris Kreftsenter opened its own infusion unit in the autumn of 2015, and since then we have treated hundreds of patients.

Our oncologists strive to work very closely with each patient’s general practitioner and local hospital.
