NUCLEAR MEDICINE

Nuclear medicine is a medical specialty involving the use of radioactive substances in the diagnosis and treatment of various diseases. With its beginning more than 5 decades ago, nuclear medicine has undergone a phenomenal growth over the years. As of today, tens of millions of nuclear medicine procedures are performed worldwide every year, helping to save countless lives.

City x-ray & scan clinic (P) Ltd., West Delhi has come up with the most modern facility in Diagnostic Nuclear Medicine Imaging, imaging which provides information at a functional level, information at a biochemistry level, etc… This has paved way for detecting diseases in their early stages, thus precluding the need for an anatomical or a morphological change. In addition, features like whole body evaluation, quantification, etc…have added a feather to its cap.

City x-ray & scan clinic (P) Ltd. Has with it now, the latest a dual head gamma camera. Also, the center is equipped with therapeutic facilities some of the commonly done nuclear medicine scans are:-

  • DTPA scan
  • DMSA scan
  • Stress Thallium
  • HIDA scan
  • GI bleed scan
  • Bone scan
  • Thyroid scan
  • Parathyroid scan etc.

Nuclear Medicine

  • Nuclear Medicine is a medical specialty which involves the administration of
    Radiopharmaceuticals {radioisotopes (radioactive portion) + pharmaceuticals (non-radioactive portion)}.
  • Radiolabeled normal constituent molecules of the body.
  • Radioisotopes to the patients for various diagnostic / therapeutic purposes.

Nuclear medical procedures are safe, both for the patient and the physicians and technologist performing the tests. Patients experience little or no discomfort and do not require anesthesia. Exposure to radioactivity is monitored closely, and kept well below safety limits. The radiation exposure is usually as much and often lower than the exposure produced by a similar radiological study such as CT scan.

Nuclear medicine technology is a highly patient-oriented field. It is a vigorous, dynamic field that has seen dramatic growth over the past two decades and is expected to grow even more in the near future. New radiopharmaceuticals and imagining technologies are continually being developed.
