Regarding the ENC-DAT study:

“Assessing the reliability of our camera in comparison to the other European centres of Excellence has been of paramount importance. This study has allowed to collect a normative database of DAT-SPECT scans in a standardised way across Europe, which is of high relevance for both scientific and clinical purpose.”

Prof. Dr. Flavio Nobili, Department of Neuroscience, Ophthalmology and Genetics University of Genoa, Italy


Regarding the EARL FDG-PET/CT accreditation programme:

“Having the EARL accreditation has helped to document appropriate PET/CT camera performance and QA on an international level, adding objective proof that we can reliably share data for multicentre trials.”

Prof. Dr. Christophe Deroose, Department of Nuclear Medicine, University Hospitals Leuven, Belgium


“Turku PET Centre is a well known world leading research centre doing both clinical and research. Our collaboration with pharma industry on drug research and patient trials is active. EARL FDG PET/CT accreditation helps us to advertise our GMP compliance, Good Clinical Practice. It is also essential in the harmonisation process of diagnostic studies of different patient populations.”

Mika Teräs, PhD, Professor of Medical Physics, Imaging Laboratory Manager at Turku PET Centre


“The Department of Nuclear Medicine of the University Hospital Leipzig decided to join the EARL FDG PET/CT accreditation program to be visible as an PET/CT Center of Excellence and to maintain a high standard of quality that is internationally widely accepted to be part of multi-center trials in PET/CT hybrid molecular imaging. Moreover, we observe a high appreciation of patients to get their PET/CT investigation done in an internationally approved center of excellence. Finally the stable results of regular quality assurance measurements involved in the program give us even more confidence in the excellent imaging performance of our PET/CT system”

Professor Osama Sabri, MD, PhD, Director and Chairman of the Department of Nuclear Medicine at the University Hospital Leipzig
