PET-CT scans are cutting-edge technology and are globally accepted as the definitive cancer management tool, but the high costs of scanning facilities lead to unaffordable prices, routinely in excess of INR 15,000-20,000. SMT is working to help alleviate the large financial burden of cancer treatments and will pay for each patient when they undergo PET-CT Scans, a subsidy amount for the poor and needy patients as per the annual family income. The Trust aims to subsidise a million scans before March 2025.
We have enrolled 12 Centres for this as of now, who is willing to do the tests at subsidised rates. Hence using this subsidy, the patients only need to pay only Rs. 9999/- for PET-CT.
