Nuclear Medicine

Nuclear Medicine Section at Doctors Hospital, Lahore provides Diagnostic and Therapeutic services utilizing radioactive materials called radiopharmaceuticals.      Use of radiopharmaceuticals is authorized by PNRA, national regulatory body, in accordance with strict international standards for safe use of these radiopharmaceuticals in medicine. Department was established in 2002 and has been offering services for almost two decades.

After administration of radiopharmaceutical, patient undergoing a scan is a source of radiation for a short duration. Images are then acquired using double head Gamma Camera, highly sophisticated machine. Planar and SPECT scanning is done according to the body part being imaged. Patient is then allowed to leave the department after confirming optimum quality scans.
