Nuclear Medicine

Treatment Process

The process implemented during the imaging techniques involving nuclear medicine is non-invasive and virtually painless, as the patients only feel a slight discomfort at the time of injecting the nuclear medicine. Nuclear medicines are the derivatives of radioactive material. The most commonly used nuclear medicine is FDG or F-18 fluorodeoxyglucose in diagnosing cancer. As the cancer cells have high metabolic activity, they readily take nuclear medicine, which is then traced with the tracer device. In some cases, radiologists recommend the combination of PET and CT scans for better clarity and detailed information.
