Nuclear Medicine

Nuclear medicine is a medical Imaging that uses radioactive tracers or radiopharmaceuticals to assess functions of body and to diagnose and treat the disease. Specially designed cameras and a computer to create images of the inside of body, allow doctors to track the path of these radioactive tracers. 

The two most common imaging modalities in nuclear medicine are:

·         Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT)

·         Positron Emission Tomography (PET)

SPECT scan provide 3D images of the distribution of radioactive tracer molecules that have been introduced into the patient’s body whereas PET scans also use radiopharmaceuticals to create 3D images. The main difference between PET and SPECT scans is the type of radiotracers used.
