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.
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.
Tumor imaging for detection and viability, is an integral part of cancer detection, follow up and response to treatment. Tumor imaging is an area, in which we specialize and perform routinely in the Department.
