Nuclear Scans

Services / Nuclear Scans


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 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.

The nuclear imaging agent is out of your system within 60 hours, but it is always decaying so it becomes minimal in a relatively short period of time.
Nuclear medicine procedures are used in diagnosing and treating certain illnesses. These procedures use radioactive materials called radiopharmaceuticals. Examples of diseases treated with nuclear medicine procedures are hyperthyroidism, thyroid cancer, lymphomas, and bone pain from some types of cancer.
Nuclear Medicine uses radiopharmaceuticals, which are radioactive tracers, usually injected intravenously, but can be inhaled, swallowed or injected otherwise. ...
