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 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, an amount of INR 3,000. The Trust aims to subsidize a million scans before March 2025.
We have enrolled 12 Centres for this as of now, who is willing to do the tests at Rs.10,000. Hence using this subsidy, they need to pay only Rs. 7000 for PET-CT.
