 Institute Information

 

Nuclear medicine is a medical specialty that uses radioactive substances to visualize the structure and function of an organ, tissue, bone or system within the body.

The procedure involves exposure to minute amounts of radioactive material. Following injection of the material into the vein, the patient undergoes a series of imaging by a gamma camera which locates the scattering of the material in the body.

Various tests performed in the Institute include scanning of the heart, bone, liver, lung, thyroid and parathyroid, kidney and gallium imaging, etc.
