  • What is Nuclear Medicine?
    Nuclear Medicine is a specialized branch of medical imaging that uses small amounts of radioactive substances to diagnose and treat diseases. It provides detailed information about the structure and function of organs and tissues at a molecular level.
  • What conditions can Nuclear Medicine diagnose?
    Nuclear Medicine can diagnose a wide range of conditions, including cancer, heart disease, thyroid disorders, bone disorders, and neurological disorders. It can also help in the evaluation of organ function and the detection of infections and inflammation.
  • How does Nuclear Medicine work?
    In Nuclear Medicine, a small amount of radioactive substance, known as a radiotracer, is injected into the patient's body. The radiotracer emits gamma rays, which are detected by a special camera called a gamma camera. The camera captures the distribution of the radiotracer in the body and creates images that show how organs and tissues are functioning.
  • Is Nuclear Medicine safe?
    Yes, Nuclear Medicine is generally safe. The radioactive substances used in Nuclear Medicine have short half-lives, which means they quickly lose their radioactivity. The amount of radiation exposure from a Nuclear Medicine procedure is usually very low and considered safe for diagnostic purposes.
  • What are the benefits of Nuclear Medicine?
    Nuclear Medicine offers several benefits, including the ability to detect diseases at an early stage, evaluate organ function, monitor treatment effectiveness, and guide targeted therapies. It can provide valuable information that other imaging modalities may not be able to provide.
  • How long does a Nuclear Medicine procedure take?
    The duration of a Nuclear Medicine procedure can vary depending on the specific test being performed. Some tests may take only a few minutes, while others may take several hours. Your healthcare provider will inform you about the expected duration of the procedure.
  • Are there any special preparations for a Nuclear Medicine procedure?
    The preparation for a Nuclear Medicine procedure can vary depending on the specific test. In some cases, you may be asked to fast for a certain period of time or avoid certain medications before the procedure. Your healthcare provider will provide you with specific instructions.
  • What are the potential risks of Nuclear Medicine?
    The radiation exposure from Nuclear Medicine procedures is generally low and considered safe. However, there may be a slight risk of an allergic reaction to the radiotracer or a rare chance of infection at the injection site. Your healthcare provider will discuss any potential risks with you before the procedure.
  • Can Nuclear Medicine be used for treatment?
    Yes, Nuclear Medicine can be used for therapeutic purposes. Certain radioactive substances can be used to treat specific types of cancer by delivering targeted radiation to cancer cells, known as radiotherapy or radionuclide therapy.
  • How can I find a qualified Nuclear Medicine facility?
    It is important to choose a reputable healthcare facility with experienced Nuclear Medicine professionals. You can ask your primary care physician for a referral or consult a specialist who can guide you to a reliable Nuclear Medicine center.
