Services - Nuclear Medicine/SPECT

Nuclear Medicine is the branch of medicine concerned with the use of radioisotopes in the diagnosis, management, and treatment of disease.
It uses small amounts of radiopharmaceuticals, substances that are attracted to specific organs, bones, or tissues, which emit gamma rays that can be detected externally by special types of cameras: gamma. These cameras work in conjunction with computers used to form images that provide data and information about the structure and functions of organs being imaged (including 3D SPECT images). The amount of radiation from a nuclear medicine procedure is comparable to that received during a diagnostic x-ray.
Investigations include bone scans, kidney scans & myocardial perfusion Imaging.
