Nuclear Medicine

Nuclear medicine can be defined as a medical branch for diagnosis and treatment with the use of radioactive substances. This method uses radioactive isotopes to visualise the internal structure of the body or diagnose a specific disease.

Nuclear medicine can be defined as a medical branch for diagnosis and treatment with the use of radioactive substances. This method uses radioactive isotopes to visualise the internal structure of the body or diagnose a specific disease.

Nuclear medicine uses many different imaging techniques to assess the function and metabolic activity of cells and organs in the body. These include conventional imaging techniques such as computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), as well as nuclear medicine techniques such as positron emission tomography (PET) and single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT). PET and SPECT are specialised imaging methods used to measure the distribution of radioactive isotopes in the body.

Nuclear medicine is also used in the treatment of certain diseases such as cancer and thyroid diseases. Radioactive substances can be used to destroy thyroid cells by targeting specific cancer cells or in cases where the thyroid gland is overactive.

Nuclear medicine is used in the early diagnosis and treatment of many medical conditions thanks to its high sensitivity and accuracy. However, as this technology also carries radiation-related risks, it should be applied with caution and should only be performed by specialists.
