The state-of-the-art 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, 131Iodine, 177Lu, 90Y etc for the treatment and diagnosis of various diseases. All diagnostic tests involving radionuclides are carried out routinely for in-house as well as referred OPD patients.
