Patient Stories


“It is my sincere hope that healthcare institutions will integrate LARA into their PET-CT protocols. Such a step would guarantee that every patient receives the highest standard of care, just as I did.”


“I am an advocate and a metastatic breast cancer thriver. I am telling my story because a PET scan likely prolonged my life. For years, I have had a PET/CT scan every 12 weeks. Getting the image right matters to my treatment plan and my life.”


“I wanted better odds on getting an accurate image of the extent of cancer in my body. This PET would guide my treatment. I requested the LARA device be used for my PET.”


“For my first two scans, Baptist used a technology to check the effectiveness of the injection of radiopharmaceutical I was given for the PET scan. This gave me great comfort knowing the radiopharmaceutical was injected properly and circulating through my body and localizing in the tumors.”


“As a patient with a nuclear medicine background, I knew the importance of a good injection for the accuracy of my images and my diagnosis. I needed the peace of mind that the Lara® System provides to patients, so I traveled to a distant center that uses Lara. It was worth it.”

Paul and His Daughter

“There was also stress watching your child having an IV started during her PET scans and I often wondered if all the radiopharmaceutical was in her circulation. This added even more stress on top of what the scan results would show.”
