Nuclear Medicine

Nuclear Medicine Overview

Nuclear medicine involves the use of small amounts of radioactive materials (or tracers) to help diagnose and treat a variety of diseases. Nuclear medicine helps determine the cause of the medical disorder – based on the function of the organ, tissue or bone. Thereby, differing from an x-ray, ultrasound or any other diagnostic test that determines the presence of disease based on structural appearance.

The Nuclear Medicine Department at Manipal Hospitals is the first state-of-the-art department of its kind in the state. It is equipped with the PET CT & Gamma Camera carrying out various Nuclear Medicine procedures. With the most recent instruments & software programs, the department is capable of diagnosing various diseases using Myocardial Perfusion, Bone Scans, Radioisotope Renal Imaging and Thyroid Scans.

PET CT – which was named by TIME magazine as the "Medical Science Invention of the Year" in the year 2000 – is one of the cutting edge technologies used currently in staging, restaging, assessment of treatment response and in follow-up of various types of cancer.
