About Nuclear Medicine

Department of Nuclear Medicine

Sohana Hospital is Equipped With Regions Most Advanced PET-CT Scanner & GAMMA Machine to Provide Accurate & Confident Findings For The Perfect Diagnosis. At Sohana Hospital, we care for you and your family and offer the best tool, to aid our experts in your proper imaging and efficient diagnosis. Nuclear medicine is a medical specialty involving the application of radioactive substances in the diagnosis and treatment of disease. Nuclear medicine imaging, in a sense, is "radiology done inside out" or "endoradiology" because it records radiation emitting from within the body rather than radiation that is generated by external sources like X-rays.
Sohana Hospital A Super Specialty Hospital is having the best in class Scanning machine to battle cancer in the state. Now, the advanced technology will enable faster and accurate detection of tumors. Experienced In House Oncologist & Onco-Surgeon Team Availale at Sohana Hospital For Better Patient Management. Our Hospital Also Provides Facility Of Gamma Scan (Thyroid Scan, Bone Scan, DTPA, Scan For Kidney Function Evaluation).


PET-CT is a combination of cross-sectional anatomic information provided by CT and metabolic information provided by positron emission tomography (PET). The basics of PET imaging is that the technique detects pairs of gamma rays emitted indirectly by a positron-emitting radionuclide (also called radiopharmaceuticals, radionuclides, or radiotracer).

The tracer Is injected into a vein on a biologically active molecule, usually a sugar that is used for cellular energy. PET systems have sensitive detector panels to capture gamma ray emissions from inside the body and use software to plot to triangulate the source of the emissions, creating 3-D computed tomography images of the tracer concentrations within the body

PET is a primary imaging modality for the detection and tracking of cancer. Nuclear imaging (PET and SPECT) are also considered a standard of care for myocardial perfusion exams to see if there is a lack of blood flow to the heart muscle due to a heart attack. PET scans can also help detect and track neurological disorders in the brain, such as Alzheimer’s disease, and the evaluation of strokes.

PET-CT has revolutionized medical diagnosis in many fields, by adding precision of anatomic localization to functional imaging, which was previously lacking from pure PET imaging. For example, many diagnostic imaging procedures in oncology, surgical planning, radiation therapy and cancer staging have been changing rapidly under the influence of PET-CT availability.
