Nuclear Medicine And Molecular Imaging

Nuclear Medicine examinations are easy examinations that do not cause trouble for the patient. They are generally called scintigraphy examinations. These examinations provide detailed information about the structure and functions of the organs and are used in disease diagnosis, treatment guidance and patient follow-up.

 

In the Nuclear Medicine Department, different imaging drugs (Radiopharmaceutical) and cameras with different characteristics (PET / CT, Gamma cameras, SPECT / CT…) are used to show the working status, anatomy, physiology and pathology of organs such as heart, kidney, lung, thyroid, liver and brain.

Nuclear Medicine And Molecular Imaging

In many different diseases such as cancer, infection, vascular occlusion, metabolic disorders, kidney diseases, brain diseases, changes due to aging, nuclear medicine examinations can collect information about the presence of the disease and its level, if available, and attempts are made to treat the disease in some diseases such as thyroid diseases.

Many diseases give symptoms at the molecular level before they give an anatomical image. In this way, early diagnosis of diseases and an increase in the success rate of treatment are provided.
