At Citizens Specialty Hospital, we offer highly advanced nuclear medicine diagnostic services to the patients suffering from different types of cancers. Nuclear medicine has both diagnostic and therapeutic purposes.
Our team of nuclear medicine specialists are experts in using imaging studies to identify the abnormal cancer cells, in the early stages of the disease. Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scans, a type of advanced imaging studies, are used, by the doctors to precisely identify the tumors in the body of the cancer patients. Radioisotopes or radio-pharmaceuticals are administered into the patient’s body through an Intravenous (IV) cannula. A set of nuclear reactions occur inside the body, after absorption of the radioisotope drugs, which gives a detailed view of the internal organs and tissues.
One of the main advantages of this process of diagnosis is that it helps in detailed analysis of the functioning of the organs, the growth of cancer cells, tissues, or structures, and helps to decide the further course of treatment.
