  • Arrival at the Airport

    Upon arrival at the Guangzhou International Airport, all passengers will pass through an exit passageway. This is the place where many Family members hold up signs with people's names on them. A Fuda staff member will have a bright pink sign with the Patient's name on it. Staff member will notify the driver to bring the car/ambulance to pick up patient and bring patient to the hospital( approximately a 50 minutes drive). If hospital's pick-up staff is nowhere to be found , call : Segundo +86-130-22-00-23-69
    In the event you fail to take the flight for some unavoidable reasons, please call Dr. Lu at +86-137-60-888-586.
  • Arrival at the Hospital

    Upon arrival, patient will be directed to the hospital room. Patient will be asked to fill-in a small hospital admission form. Additionally, patient will need to fast (no food or water) after midnight, though a small amount of water is okay if absolutely necessary. It is suggested to have a full meal before midnight.
  • Blood Test and Scan

    The next morning, a nurse will come in to do various tests (blood, stool, urine, etc.). Patient may also be doing PET/CT scan that morning. If the scan is not performed on the first morning, it may have been scheduled for the next morning. PET/CT process takes about 1.5 hours, but the actual scan is only about 20 minutes. After arriving at the center, there is a fair bit of waiting. You will need to drink a medicated water. At one point, a nurse will inject a radioactive dye 'tracer' (fludeoxyglucose). After this injection, you will need to sit still or sleep for approximately 45 minutes, to allow for the dye to take effect. After the scan, wait 15 minutes, and you can begin eating and drinking.
  • Treatment Plan

    After the doctor gets all of the examination results and discusses them with specialists, the doctor will come up with the best treatment plan. Normally, the PET/CT scan result will come up in the afternoon of the second day. Normally treatment plan comes by the third day. The doctor will discuss the treatment plan.
