Nuclear medicine was established at the University of Bergen in March 2006. Nuclear medicine/PET-centre at Haukeland University Hospital in Bergen is part of the Department of Radiology. We perform all conventional nuclear medicine as well as positron emission tomography with [18F]FDG, [11C]methionine (only site in Norway), [18F]FLT (only site in Norway), [18F]FMISO (only site in Norway), [18F]FDOPA (only site in Norway), [68Ga]DOTATOC, and [18F]PSMA-1007, all produced in our own cyclotron/radiochemistry unit according to GMP standard. Thyroid and parathyroid imaging is routinely performed with high-resolution ultrasound of the neck including ultrasound-guided biopsies if indicated.
