Nuclear Medicine Department

Nuclear Medicine is a medical specialty that uses safe, painless and cost effective techniques both to image the body and treat diseases. It involves the use of minute quantities of radioactive substances combines with pharmaceuticals to study the functioning of various organs and to some extent the structure of the anatomy. It is a procedure to gather medical information, which may be otherwise unavailable with the other existing modalities which may require surgery. This detection process allows to disease to be treated early in its course, leading to highly successful prognosis.

In all nuclear medicine scan, small amount of radioactive material tagged with suitable radiopharmaceutical is injected either through the IV route or orally or by inhalation into the body. They produce gamma ray emission from the target organ, which is subsequently scanned by a special type of camera called SPECT (Rotating Gamma Camera).

Nuclear Medicine can provide:
  • Accurate images that help healthcare professionals to understand the body’s internal organs and tissues.
  • Valuable information and measurements of organ and tissue function.
  • Therapy to fight diseases.

Nuclear Medicine is an important tool that is:
• Safe : Only small amounts of short-lived radioactive materials are used.
• Effective : It can detect a wide variety of diseases such as cancer, heart diseases, kidney diseases, brain disorders, etc.
