Nuclear medicine is a medical specialty where radioactive substances are administered in order to detect the presence of disease in the body or/and to treat a variety of diseases and conditions.

Once administered at low dosage to the patient, the radioactive material fixes itself on specific organs such as bones, thyroid, myocardium, kidneys, lungs etc and allows for the disease's spread visualisation. Nuclear medicine tests differ from most other imaging tests as it analyses the system’s physiological function as opposed to traditional anatomical imaging such as X-ray and CT or MRI.

Nuclear medicine can in some cases identify medical issues and diseases at a much earlier stage than other diagnostic tests.

Depending on which type of test is being performed, imaging can be done either immediately or few hours after the radiopharmaceutical injection. Imaging sessions also vary in length of time, generally ranging from 20 to 60 minutes.

Important :

In some cases, you will also be informed to cease any current medication (please ask your doctor).

Please inform your physician if you are pregnant or breast feeding.

Kindly remain as still as possible while imaging is being conducted.
