Nuclear Medicine is a specialised area of Molecular Imaging & Therapy that uses minimal amounts of radiopharmaceuticals to examine organ function and structure to diagnose cancer and other malfunctions. Therapy is given by using a range of radioactive isotopes for different malignancies.

PET CT combines functional PET (Positron Emission Tomography) and CT (Computed Tomography) images to pinpoint the states of the diseases in the body. A PET scan identifies the biological function of the body before anatomical changes take place while a CT scan acquires information about the body’s anatomy such as size, shape and location of abnormal lesion.

SPECT/CT is a nuclear medicine that uses two imaging techniques where SPECT demonstrates function at the cellular level and CT demonstrates detailed anatomy while sharing the abnormality within the body. The process of having the test outweighs any risk or side effects, enabling the doctor to evaluate the problem precisely.
