The department specializes in an area that uses very small amounts of radioactive materials, or radiopharmaceuticals, to examine organ function and structure. Nuclear medicine imaging is a combination of many different disciplines.
Procedures & Treatments
These include chemistry, physics, mathematics, computer technology and medicine. This branch often helps to diagnose and treat abnormalities very early in the progression of a disease, such as thyroid cancer, neuro endocrine tumors, prostate cancer etc.
Nuclear Medicine is a specialty that is based on molecular level imaging and hence helps in very early diagnosis of diseases even before anatomical abnormalities show up and sometimes even before the patient is symptomatic.
