Nuclear Medicine is a medical speciality which utilizes small amounts of radioactive substances for diagnosis and treatment of various diseases including many types of cancers, heart disease and other abnormalities. Nuclear medicine imaging procedures usually identify diseases at very early stages before they are appear on the other diagnostic tests. It is safe and painless way to provide important the informations about diseases which may be unavailable from other types of diagnosing tests.
My Health Turkey has decades of experience and knowledge in the health sector and has been involved and connected with the Turkey’s leading hospitals. In order to guarantee that our patients get reliable and effective medical care we are carefully selecting best doctors and top hospitals to be part of our exclusive network. Through our network hospitals we are pleased to provide immediate access to nuclear medicine imaging tests at affordable prices.
PET-CT (Positron Emission Tomography) Scan Imaging
PET-CT (Positron Emission Tomography) is a type of nuclear medicine imaging which combines the images from a PET scan and a CT scan to display anatomy and metabolic function of the organs.PET-CT is used for early detection of abnormal metabolism and tumours.
PET/CT is used to diagnose various diseases, such as:
Cancers: diagnosing, staging, evaluating, status of reoccurrence and treatment response
Detection of cancer metastases in bones
Heart disease: Coronary heart disease and damaged heart muscles
Brain disorders: tumors, memory disorders, seizures, central nervous system
PET-CT scanning performs by injecting a small amount radioactive substances into a vein and process can take about an hour. Radioactive substances remains a short period of time in the body before being eliminated in the urine or stool, usually within 24 hours. The amount of radiation from a nuclear medicine imaging procedure is comparable to a X-ray scanning. Device is open so does not cause you feel claustrophobic.
Gallium-68 PSMA PET-CT Imaging
Prostate Cancer tumors and neuro-endocrine tumours can be easily diagnosed and staged with the Gallium-68 Pet-Ct scanning. Ga-68 is a important imaging agent to detect and demonstrate neuroendocrine tumors. It can detect tumors as small as 4 millimeters.
Nuclear Medicine departments at our associate hospitals offer great patient convenience.
No considerable toxicity
Low radiation expose
Shorter examination time
Whole Pet-CT scan procedure can be completed in a few hours
Gamma Camera (Scintigraphy)
Scintigraphy helps to diagnose and evaluate various bone diseases such as cancer or infection using small amounts of radioactive substances that are injected into a vein. It is also used to detect joint problems, such as arthritis.
