Nuclear Medicine

Nuclear Medicine is a relatively new and rapidly developing medical specialty which uses trace amounts of radionuclides for imaging and treatment of cancers and non-cancerous conditions. The unique feature of Nuclear Medicine is that it demonstrates organ function in contrast to routine diagnostic radiology which provides structural details. These Nuclear Medicine procedures detect abnormalities much earlier than other diagnostic tests in many conditions as the functional changes occur earlier than structural changes become apparent, there by leading to earlier treatment with better outcome.
