Nuclear Medicine: Dual Head Gamma Camera

Mahajan Imaging & Labs has been a pioneer in the field of Nuclear Medicine since 2000 when we were amongst the first in the country to start Nuclear Medicine testing. Now Mahajan Imaging & Labs is equipped with the latest and state-of-the-art machinery across 3 centres and performs routine and complicated studies for adults and children.

Nuclear Medicine is a medical speciality that uses small amounts of radioactive materials, known as radiopharmaceuticals, for diagnostic, therapeutic, and research purposes. These radiopharmaceuticals are specific for the organ, tumour or tissue desired to be studied. Once injected into a patient these radiopharmaceuticals localise in the area of interest, which is then imaged using a special camera. Highly simplified, it is something like taking an X-ray from the inside out.

Nuclear Medicine provides unique information about the structure and function of nearly every human organ. The ability to characterise and quantify physiologic function makes nuclear medicine different from an X-ray / CT or MRI. As radiopharmaceuticals become more sophisticated, it is becoming possible to see inside of human beings at the molecular level.

Nuclear medical procedures are safe for the patient and the physicians and technologists performing the tests. Patients experience little or no discomfort and do not require anaesthesia. Exposure to radioactivity is monitored closely and kept well below safety limits. The radiation exposure is usually as much and often lower than the exposure produced by a similar radiological study such as CT.

Nuclear medicine technology is a highly patient-oriented, vigorous, and dynamic field that has seen dramatic growth over the past two decades and is expected to grow even more in the near future. New radiopharmaceuticals and imaging technologies are continually being developed.
