Nuclear Medicine

Nuclear Medicine is a medical speciality which utilizes small amounts of radioactive substances for diagnosis and treatment of various diseases including many types of cancers, heart disease and other abnormalities. Nuclear medicine imaging procedures usually identify diseases at very early stages before they are appear on the other diagnostic tests. It is safe and painless way to provide important the informations about diseases which may be unavailable from other types of diagnosing tests.

Through our partnership we are pleased to provide immediate access to nuclear medicine imaging tests at affordable prices.

 

PET-CT (Positron Emission Tomography) Scan Imaging

PET-CT (Positron Emission Tomography) is a type of nuclear medicine imaging which combines the images from a PET scan and a CT scan to display anatomy and metabolic function of the organs.PET-CT is used for early detection of abnormal metabolism and tumours.
PET/CT is used to diagnose various diseases, such as:

  • Cancers: diagnosing, staging, evaluating, status of reoccurrence and treatment response
  • Detection of cancer metastases in bones
  • Heart disease: Coronary heart disease and damaged heart muscles
  • Brain disorders: tumors, memory disorders, seizures, central nervous system

PET-CT scanning performs by injecting a small amount radioactive substances into a vein and process can take about an hour. Radioactive substances remains a short period of time in the body before being eliminated in the urine or stool, usually within 24 hours. The amount of radiation from a nuclear medicine imaging procedure is comparable to a X-ray scanning. Device is open so does not cause you feel claustrophobic.

Gallium-68 PSMA PET-CT Imaging

Prostate Cancer tumors and neuro-endocrine tumours can be easily diagnosed and staged with the Gallium-68 Pet-Ct scanning. Ga-68 is a important imaging agent to detect and demonstrate neuroendocrine tumors. It can detect tumors as small as 4 millimeters.
Nuclear Medicine departments at our associate hospitals offer great patient convenience.

  • No considerable toxicity
  • Low radiation expose
  • Shorter examination time
  • Whole Pet-CT scan procedure can be completed in a few hours

Gamma Camera (Scintigraphy)

Scintigraphy helps to diagnose and evaluate various bone diseases such as cancer or infection using small amounts of radioactive substances that are injected into a vein. It is also used to detect joint problems, such as arthritis.
