Nuclear Medicine

Department of Nuclear Medicine at Yashoda Super Specialty Hospitals with its state of art DUAL HEAD GAMMA CAMERA, GE cater to the need for quality diagnostic & treatment services in a professional and world class environment with use of small amounts of radioactive materials (or tracers) to help diagnose and treat a variety of diseases. Nuclear medicine determines the cause of the medical problem based on the function of the organ, tissue or bone. This is how nuclear medicine differs from an x-ray, ultrasound or any other diagnostic test that determines the presence of disease based on structural appearance.

Advantages associated with Nuclear Medicine:

Nuclear medicine can diagnose and treat diseases in a safe and painless way. It involves the use of special computers and cameras, and small doses of permitted radioactive substances introduced into the body, by injection, oral, or inhalation. It helps to identify sites of seizures (epilepsy), Parkinson’s disease, and Alzheimer’s disease and early detection of neurodegenerative disorders as well as myocardial disorders.. It finds cancers, determines whether they are responding to treatment, and notifies if infected bones will heal.

Nuclear Medicine involves the study of the organs at the cellular level, often picking up disease before there is a change at the structural level, making it more physiologic and more sensitive than other tests like ultrasound, CT, MRI, etc in many clinical situations
