Nuclear Medicine

Nuclear Medicine is a branch of medical Imaging techniques that use radiation (radioisotopes) to treat some medical conditions especially cancer. Initially, it was used for thyroid diseases diagnosing. The special camera and imaging techniques used in nuclear medicine include the gamma camera and single-photon emission-computed tomography (SPECT). Nuclear medicine has benefits as well as risk factors. Patients having Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma patients who do not respond to chemotherapy may undergo radioimmunotherapy (RIT).In future, it may be possible to embed chemotherapy into medication imaging agents that will attach only to cancer cells, In this way, the chemotherapy would kill only the target cells and not the nearby healthy tissue. This would reduce some of the adverse effects of chemotherapy.
