NUCLEAR MEDICINE DEPARTMENT
The Department of Nuclear Medicine, M. N. Budhrani Cancer Institute is equipped with a SPECT-CT scanner, The Infinia Hawkeye 4 Nuclear system from GE Healthcare which is a hybrid scanner (i.e CT & SPECT Dual Head Gamma Camera).
It provides fully registered functional (SPECT) and anatomical information in a single image with a single examination. This helps us to determine the nature and precise location of the lesion. Fusion images from complementary modalities offer a more complete and accurate assessment of the disease.
We have a two bedded isolation ward approved by AERB for Nuclear Medicine therapies…. the first approved therapy ward in Maharashtra outside of RMC,Mumbai.
The Department of Nuclear Medicine has been treating Thyroid Cancer patients with Radioiodine therapies for the past 18 years.
