The CoMIT at 200 Rivonia Road in Sandton offers the full suite of diagnostic and theranostic services, including the latest in Positron Emission Tomography (PET) technology, with all the known PET traces from fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) and even up to prostate cancer imaging. The CoMIT is also the first center in Gauteng to offer the 5 Ring Positron Emission Tomography and Computed Tomography (PET/CT). Other technological advances on offer include the Motion-Free PET and the Q-Clear technology, which offers the best sensitivity available on the market.
Having partnered with GE in other practices, we knew they would be the perfect team to help us fulfill our vision of creating a “beacon” for Africa – a center that will bring the best service, newest therapies, and latest technologies together in a space that feels more like home and less like a clinic. We can now offer molecular imaging for any system in the body that needs to be assessed for functionality.

Today nuclear medicine is an important field at the cutting edge of diagnostic and theranostic treatment of cancers and other critical diseases.
Opening a center of this scale and standard is challenging at the best of times, let alone in the midst of a global pandemic. That’s where our teams were able to assist the partners with our global contacts facilitating the sourcing of global equipment as well as its installation, all within the limitations that COVID presented.
