MINSK, 25 April (BelTA) – The National Positron Emission Tomography (PET) Center of the Alexandrov National Cancer Center of Belarus exported services worth $180,000 in 2018, BelTA learned from PET Center head Valery Sinayko.

“Last year the center earned almost $180,000 providing diagnostic services to foreign citizens. Over 90% of our patients come from post-Soviet countries, half of whom are Russians and Ukrainians. We also have customers from the Middle East, the EU. Last year we even had one patient from the U.S.,” Valery Sinayko noted.

According to him, people take several factors into account while choosing a center to undergo the PET/CT tests (a combination of positron emission tomography and computed tomography). “In general, the cost of the diagnostics is more or less the same in all countries. More important factors are logistics, transport expenses, availability of necessary drugs, good accommodation, and other services the center provides,” Valery Sinayko said.
