Vimhans PrimaMed Institute of Nuclear Medicine & Molecular Imaging presents a state-of-the-art Center for PET and Molecular Imaging (CPMI). The center brings you advanced imaging techniques that are essential to the early detection and tracking of different diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular and neurological disease. The CPMI utilizes the latest nuclear medicine to diagnose the presence of disease in your body and also treat different types of cancer.

The center has the capability to perform both SPECT and PET/CT fusion imaging by using state-of-the-art scanners. Our exceptional team of qualified physicians, technologists and staff brings unparalleled experience and quality care in the region.

Molecular Imaging

Molecular imaging uses advanced imaging technology to provide detailed pictures of what is happening inside your body at the cellular and molecular level. Other imaging procedures, such as CT, X-rays and ultrasound, offer images of physical structure, but molecular imaging enables the doctors to see how your body is functioning and to measure its chemical and biological processes.

Molecular imaging involves the field of nuclear medicine, which uses small amounts of radioactive materials called radiopharmaceuticals to diagnose and treat disease. Nuclear medicine can also be used to treat different types of cancers and other diseases. Molecular imaging provides unique insights into the human body that allow physicians to personalize patient care. Molecular imaging is able to:

Offer information that is unattainable with traditional imaging technologies or that would require more invasive procedures such as surgery or biopsy
Detect and identify disorder in its earliest stages and determine the exact location of a tumor

As a brilliant tool for managing and evaluating the care of patients, molecular imaging studies help physicians:

Detect the extent or severity of the disorder
Select the most effective therapy based on the unique biologic characteristics of the patient and the molecular properties of a tumor or other disorders
Accurately assesses the effectiveness of the treatment
Determine a patient’s response to specific drugs
Assess disease progression
Adapt treatment plans rapidly in response to changes in cellular activity
Pinpoint recurrence of disease and help managing ongoing care

Molecular imaging procedures are noninvasive, safe and painless. They are used to diagnose and manage the treatment of heart disease, cancer, bone disorders, lung disorders, kidney and thyroid disorder, brain disorder such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, and more.
