Nuclear

Nuclear Medicine is a branch of medicine in which radioactive materials (unsealed sources of radiation) are used for the diagnosis and treatment of disease.

The department of Nuclear Medicine at the Batra Hospital undertakes the diagnosis and treatment of patients suffering from a wide spectrum of diseases.

A Hybrid Dual Head SPECT-CT System from Siemens (Symbia-T) has been installed in the department. 
In addition, Radio Immuno Assays are carried out in our RIA laboratory on the second floor where all hormone profiles are assayed. Patients are also treated in the Department with therapeutic levels of radioactivity for diseases such as thyrotoxicosis and painful bone metastasis, as outpatients.
