Angela went above and beyond my expectations. She is very friendly and you can always feel at ease contacting her. She made sure I was comfortable with our choice of surgeon Dr. Can Karaca and set up a video call for me. Always ready to help and answer any questions (she would always be available despite the 7 hour time difference)! I wasn’t really sure about traveling to Istanbul, Turkey for my procedure until I met Angela and she explained everything from start to finish and stood behind her words to always be of assistance. Mind you I have been researching for months now for a good doctor and went back and forth between waiting 2 years to get my surgery done in Canada or even traveling to Mexico for it! I was thinking Turkey would be a difficult route due to time difference and the distance but I’m very happy I chose to go to Turkey with Flymedi and I’m glad my agent was Angela Sabou! Do not hesitate to work with Flymedi and especially request Angela if you can!!! - a very satisfied client

Adonis Fertility International Caring Professionals

After trying IVF unsuccessfully in the US for many years Maria from Adonis Fertility International gave me hope. I was very impressed by her work ethic and I trusted she would work hard at helping us become parents. Her communication was top-notch. I choose Adonis because of Maria and then worked with Amy, Nancy, and Ivanna and ALL were Amazing. Everything is broken down for you in steps and very organized. There was always someone there to answer a question you may. Its been a very smooth process, with all the legal documents and made transporting the biomaterial stress-free. We are still in our beginning stages and I will give another review at the end but everything so far has been excellent and I would recommend Adonis to any US couple looking to try IVF and hopefully become parents.

Excellent service

Excellent service. I was really hesitant at first, because I’ve never done anything like this before, but Kirstie did a great job of answering all my questions & concerns, in a timely manner. I would highly recommend using this service.

At the beginning, I was very hesitant about having my surgeries, especially the idea of having them in Turkey, which is a country located across the ocean of where I come from, the United States of America. When I initially started my research, I came across Flymedi, and I strongly believe that connecting with them was the best decision I have made in regards of having my desired surgeries. After entering my contact information, I was contacted from Flymedi by an agent named Abud. On one hand, Abud has been a great assist and support to my journey, as he was involved in every step throughout the process. He was very responsive to all my concerns and inquiries before and after the operations. On the other hand, everyone at the clinic that I was referred to (EstEthica) was very nice and welcoming. The in-person consultant on site (Lamia) was extremely helpful and kind. She, along with the whole clinic staff, made me feel so comfortable and made the whole trip seem as smooth as possible, despite the discomfort after the surgeries. In terms of the results, I can not speak of this just yet as it has only been a week since I have had my operations. However, I will definitely come back within a couple of months to update my review and speak about the results and any other additional notes along the way. In a nutshell, all I can say that I am grateful for everything so far, and I truly appreciate everyone that was involved in this process! P.S. as a word of advice, if you are having a hair transplant operation, I highly recommend having it at least 3 - 4 days before your departure flight back home, as the post operation instructions are a bit intense and not being in a rush would significantly help with the recovery process.

Overview

Positron Emission Tomography, also known as PET, is a neurological imaging technique that is mostly used for diagnosis and research objectives. PET scan is used by neurologists in order to inspect one’s brain detailly and to start the diagnosis process accordingly. As a result of the PET scan, the doctors can identify metastases and tumors as well as the possible problems related to the nervous system.

Preparation

For the PET scan procedure, preparation is crucial. Before the procedure, it is recommended to wear warm and comfortable clothes. Also, it is suggested to avoid wearing any metal jewelry and accessories. A day before the PET scan, the patient should limit their caffeine and sugar consumption in addition to being properly hydrated.Before the procedure, the patient should not eat anything and drink lots of water for six hours.
Also, diabetic patients should consult their doctor for specific instructions regarding their condition.Another important aspect of the preparation is the PET scan procedure cost. The patients should know the costs before starting the procedure.

How It Is Performed

PET scan is performed by injecting a small number of radioactive substances into the blood circulation.After the injection, the patient will rest for an hour, waiting for the substance to dissolve in the organism. Before starting the PET scan procedure, the patients are requested to empty their bladder and lie down on the scanner bed.Generally, the PET scan procedure lasts for around 15-35 minutes, but it depends on the type of PET scan machine and the type of scan performed.Additionally, it is very important to stay still during the procedure.

Recovery

Once the procedure is completed, patients can leave the hospital and continue their daily routine. After the procedure, in order to shorten the time of the elimination of radiopharmaceutical substance from the body, proper hydration is suggested. The PET scan results would be provided between 24 to 48 hours.

Risks

Since the PET scan is a non-invasive procedure, it does not involve any pain or risks related to the procedure.

Side Effects

The doctors would inform the patients about any possible side effects of PET scan.

Success Rates

For the fields of diagnosis and research, PET scan is thought to be very efficient.

Before And After

Shortly after the procedure, a written report of the PET scan is provided to the patients. The doctor would interpret the report to inform the patients about their condition.
