Conventional Nuclear Medicine Procedures

The Gamma Camera with SPECT tomography & integrated CT scanner was installed in 2015. It provides the best quality Gamma Imaging with CT localization and that helps in image interpretation with greater sensitivity & specificity. This is also a hybrid imaging system mostly used for post radionuclide therapy and for other conventional Gamma imaging.

The patient protection concept is again highlighted in this equipment where the X-ray radiation over exposure is truncated by the equipment itself.

Imaging Procedures

Gamma Camera imaging involves the use of certain isotopes like 99mTc, Gallium, Iodine, Thallium etc for the treatment and diagnosis of various diseases. All diagnostic tests involving radionuclides are possible and are carried out routinely for in-house as well as referred OPD patients.

Facilities Provided

  • Bone Scan for skeletal disorders.
  • 99 Tc MIBI Scintimammography
  • Different types of renal scans like DTPA and DMSA scans for the Kidney Function & Morphological Defects,
  • 99m Tc RBC Gated Blood Pool Scans
  • Myocardial Perfusion Scans for Cardiac Evaluation,
  • Thyroid Scans,
  • Hepatobiliary Scans,
  • Lung perfusion & Ventilation Scans
  • 131 I whole body scans
  • 67 Ga Citrate for infection imaging
