Cyclotron Room

Nuclear Medicine



A Hospital Cyclotron is used to produce radioisotopes necessary for PET (Positron Emission Tomography) imaging, for clinical and research purposes. SKMT installed Pakistan’s first cyclotron in SKMCH&RC, Lahore in 2009. Hospital cyclotrons have revolutionised molecular imaging with major application in oncology alongside cardiology and neurology.

SKMCH&RC in Karachi will have a Cyclotron Room in Nuclear Medicine (similar to the ones at SKMCH&RC, Lahore, photographs of which are shown above).


  • Fixation of a lifetime dedication plaque outside of the Cyclotron Room in Nuclear Medicine at SKMCH&RC, Karachi
  • Placement of the name of Donor on the Founding Donor Monument to be built at SKMCH&RC, Karachi
