Imaging…with heart and innovation
Dr. Patrick Veit-Haibach and Dr. Michael Domanski

​​​​​​Dr. Patrick Veit-Haibach, left above, and Dr. Michael Domanski are part of the team-based approach at the PMCC that works to maximize innovation using the PET-MRI machine.

A cutting-edge PET-MRI machine has enabled doctors to find new, less-invasive ways to improve the lives of patients and conduct new research

An​yone who has ever slid through the tunnel of a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machine likely remembers its raucous whirring and knocking, not to mention the squeeze of a snug 70-centimetre-wide bore.

But for some patients undergoing procedures at the Peter Munk Cardiac Centre (PMCC), the time spent in the life-saving imaging machine will result in something even more – Positron Emission Tomography (PET) images.
