The University awarded a contract for injectable tracers for PET scans.
AAA offers products that are used in molecular nuclear medicine diagnostics and therapeutics which are used in Positron emission tomography (PET scan). Positron-emission tomography is a nuclear medicine functional imaging technique that is used to observe metabolic processes in the body as an aid to the diagnosis of disease. AAA has an injectable tracer which is done through an injection through the patient?s blood stream. Three-dimensional images of tracer concentration within the body are then constructed by computer analysis. In modern PET-CT scanners, three-dimensional imaging is often accomplished with the aid of a CT X-ray scan performed on the patient during the same session, in the same machine. Use of this tracer to explore the possibility of cancer metastasis (i.e., spreading to other sites) is the most common type of PET scan in standard medical care.
This purchase is exempt from the usual selection processes of the Procurement Code because the procurement expenditure is for medical supplies or medical services necessary for the delivery of care and treatment at medical, dental, or veterinary teaching facilities utilized by SIU or U of I (30 ILCS 500 / 1-13(b-5)) Advanced Accelerator Applications USA, Inc. injectable tracers (known by AAA as NETSPOT) has to do with direct patient care. Without the AAA?s NETSPOT the University of Illinois Hospital would not be able to offer PET scan?s that would drive patients elsewhere and result in a loss of revenue to the Hospital.
