Radiology and Nuclear Medicine


Our radiology and nuclear medicine department offers a wide range of diagnostic and interventional radiology imaging services.

Unveiling the Power of Medical Imaging

Radiology and Nuclear Medicine are two essential fields within medical imaging that have revolutionised the way we diagnose and treat diseases. Radiology involves using various imaging techniques such as X-rays, CT scans, and MRI scans to obtain detailed images of the body's internal structures. These images provide valuable insights into the presence of abnormalities or injuries, helping physicians make accurate diagnoses and plan appropriate treatments.

Nuclear Medicine, on the other hand, utilises small amounts of radioactive materials to diagnose and treat diseases at a molecular level. It involves the use of specialised imaging equipment to detect and measure the distribution of these radioactive substances in the body. By assessing organ function, metabolism, and tissue abnormalities, Nuclear Medicine helps healthcare professionals gain a deeper understanding of diseases and select the most effective treatment options.

Together, Radiology and Nuclear Medicine contribute significantly to patient care by providing valuable diagnostic information, guiding therapeutic interventions, and monitoring treatment effectiveness.
