NUCLEAR MEDICINE

 

Nuclear Medicine is a unique functional imaging and therapeutic modality where small amounts of radioactive materials (or tracers) are used to diagnose and treat variety of diseases. Being principally different from conventional imaging like X-ray, Ultrasound or CT scan which provide structural information about the organ system, Nuclear Medicine studies help diagnose diseases based on functional information which helps in early diagnosis and better treatment outcome, reason being functional changes tend to occur much earlier than structural changes in a disease process.

The Nuclear Medicine Department at Manipal Hospitals Goa is the first and only state-of-the art department of its kind in entire state of Goa. It is equipped with Gamma Camera (SPECT-CT) which can perform almost entire spectrum of Nuclear Medicine procedures.
