Nuclear medicine is mainly a branch medical imaging, in which small amounts of radioactive materials are used in order to diagnose and treat many diseases, including several types of cancers, heart diseases, endocrine, gastrointestinal, neurological disorder and other abnormalities within the human body. Since nuclear medicine procedures are able to detect molecular activity within the body, they offer the potential to identify disease in its earliest stage as well as a patient’s immediate response to therapeutic interventions. On the other hand, molecular imaging is a type of medicinal imaging that offers detailed pictures of what is happening inside your body at the molecular and cellular level.
Across the world, nuclear medicine with PET/CT and SPET/CT has revolutionized diagnosis and assessment of major diseases. We at Vimhans PrimaMed Institute of Nuclear Medicine & Molecular Imaging aim at contributing to the understanding of and prevention and cure of catastrophic human chronic diseases, such as cancer, autoimmune diseases, fatigue illnesses, rheumatic diseases, AIDS, and infections and genetic disorders. We do it through innovative basic and translational research programs.
We at the Institute of Nuclear Medicine & Molecular Imaging apply basic and translational molecular research approaches to better understand and treat catastrophic human chronic diseases. Through the uses of latest imagine technologies, we offer more accurate assessment of different diseases. Some of them are:
• Thyroid scan
• Renal scan
• Myocardial perfusion
