Morton A. Kreitchman PET Imaging Center
The Morton A. Kreitchman PET Imaging Center in the Allan Rosenfield Building uses positron emission tomography, a powerful, non-invasive, diagnostic tool that detects biochemical changes in body tissues. Before MRI and CT scans can detect changes, PET can identify early biochemical markers of disease. PET helps physicians improve the accuracy of a diagnosis, create an individualized treatment plan, and closely monitor a patient's progress. The Kreitchman PET Center offers clinical care in oncology, neurology, and cardiology.
Project Location: Allan Rosenfield Building
Client: Department of Radiology
Project Program: The complete demolition of the lower two levels of the Allan Rosenfeld Building, transforming administrative and laboratory space into a neurological imaging facility funded by a New York State Office of Science, Technology, and Academic Research grant.
Project Scope: A new state-of-the-art clinical and research imaging facility with four PET/CT scanners. The project included two Siemens Cyclotrons for research imaging protocols and 8,000-square-foot research laboratories. The renovation added pneumatic tubes for distribution of radioactive pharmaceutical doses.
Project Area: 27,000 square feet
