Our Services


Nuclear Medicine is a specialized modern branch that utilizes radio-isotopes in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases like Cancer, Tumour, Cysts, Hematoma etc. Nuclear medicine techniques can identify diseases early in their course, even before conventional imaging methods are able to detect the disease. Nuclear medicine techniques are very safe, and without significant adverse effects. It is utilized in the evaluation of the function of the organs.

Positron emission tomography (PET-CT) is indispensable in evaluation of Oncology patients. It is also utilized in evaluation of myocardial viability and in evaluation of neurological conditions.
