Vladimir Yakunin takes part in opening ceremony of Nuclear Medicine Centre


The Russian Railways' Nuclear Medicine Centre has been inaugurated at the N.A. Semashko Central Clinical Hospital № 2 in Moscow.

The event was attended by Vladimir Yakunin, President of Russian Railways.

"The Nuclear Medicine Centre is unique in Russia," said Vladimir Yakunin. "The opening of the most modern such Centre in the counry demonstrates that Russian Railways pays special attention to the health and rehabilitation of its employees. The new Centre offers a completely different level of medicine and the latest technology and equipment, allowing it to deal effectively with a serious illness such as cancer,"

The Centre will diagnose and monitor the effectiveness of treatment of a number of oncological, cardiological and neurological diseases by using nuclear medicine, in particular by positron emission tomography. The Centre will also produce positron-emitting radiopharmaceuticals, which will greatly enhance the ability of the Russian Railways' health system to provide quality health care to patients.

Doctors will be able to not only visualise the tumor process in its early stages, but also to identify accurately the spread of the disease, and thus determine correctly the tactics and methods for treating malignant tumors, and monitor the effectiveness of surgery and chemotherapy.
