No place for PET (positron emission tomography) centre in Norwegian health budget

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Norwegian doctors' aims of establishing a national PET centre may have to be put on ice for the foreseeable future, as the project has not been awarded any finance in the state budget for 2002-03. "It is utterly deplorable that the health authorities do not see what PET means for the diagnosis and treatment of a range of serious diseases, and for clinical research," said Leif Gjerstadt, professor of neurology at the national hospital (Rikshospitalet) in Oslo. He added that as a result Norway would lag behind the rest of Europe in this field.
