The branch of medicine that deals with the application of radioactive substances called radioactive tracers to visualize organs, to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases is nuclear medicine. Nuclear medicine is a branch of radiology and is a combination of many disciplines like physics, chemistry, computer technology and medicine. Nuclear medicine imaging measures radiation generating from within the body rather than radiation generated from external sources. Conditions like hypothyroidsm, thyroid cancer and bone pain caused by other cancers are treated using nuclear medicine. Single photon emission computed tomography and positron emission tomography are the two most important modalities of nuclear medicine. Radiopharmaceuticals are the medicine used in nuclear medicine. These medicines are administered intravenously or orally and the external gamma detectors capture and form images from the radiation emitted by radiopharmaceuticals by tracing their path. The department of nuclear medicine at Narayana Health Group provides a wide range of diagnostic and treatment services for many disorders and is considered to be the best nuclear medicine hospital in Bangalore. It is equipped with state-of-art gamma camera, stress laboratory and PET CT. There are well-designed radioiodine therapy wards for treating patients with thyroid cancer. Patients are assured to be in good hands under the comprehensive care and guidance of trained specialists and experienced technical staff.
