- Nuclear Medicine
Introduction of the classroom
The Department of Nuclear Medicine provides various diagnostic and therapeutic services for the patients in a safe and non-invasive manner. The imaging service furnish specifically functional information along with anatomical one of organ or body part for early diagnosis, determination of the characterization and severity, prognosis and prediction of therapeutic responses of diseases. Department provides radionuclide-based therapeutic modalities for a variety of diseases including many types of cancer, heart disease, gastrointestinal, endocrine, neurological disorders and other abnormalities.
In addition to clinical services, department’s research and develop focuses on new innovative imaging technologies to decipher the transformation from normal healthy to abnormal diseased state on biochemical and molecular/cellular level. It also develops the simultaneous Imaging-and-Therapeutic (Theragnostics) technology based on the diversification of radiotracers and bioactive molecules.
The ultimate mission/goal of Nuclear Medicine Department is to provide a new avenue with pioneering medical science and technologies for the determination of the status of health, identification of early symptoms and signs for the diseases, prediction of disease courses and the demonstration of precise molecular profile of diseases as a part of the new era of the modern medicine.
