The Nuclear Medicine Department at Sir H. N. Reliance Foundation Hospital and Research Centre offers a wide range of services including Hybrid Diagnostic Imaging and Treatment solutions. Equipped with state-of-the-art Hybrid Imaging Technology, this Department provides facilities that are at par with international standards.
Advances in the field of medicine have made it possible for doctors to study not only the structural details of organs in health and disease but also their functions. Hybrid Imaging Technology has helped Health care to transcend from side by side-correlative structural and functional image information to co-registered fusion image information leading discrete imaging information into more meaningful integrated imaging information.
The popularly known PET- CT (Positron Emission Tomography) and SPECT-CT (Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography) Imaging is focused on understanding of the molecular processes like metabolism, receptor expression and other changes happening at a cellular level during disease processes varying from patient to patient, significantly improving their diagnosis and treatment outcomes.
PET-CT is useful in the evaluation of several cancers, assessment of hibernating myocardium in patients with heart disease and specific brain disorders. The SPECT-CT is useful in functional evaluation of disorders involving the Brain, Salivary glands, Thyroid and Parathyroid glands, Lungs, Heart, Liver, Gall bladder, Spleen, Kidneys, Bones and a variety of tumours.
The Hybrid Imaging Services of the Nuclear Medicine Department are focused on improving Patient comfort and experience through its ergonomically designed and patient friendly workflows ensuring complete patient safety in compliance with the Atomic Energy Regulatory Board Rules and Regulations.
Best-in-class infrastructure supported with high-end equipment are the mainstay of this unique state-of-the-art Molecular & Hybrid Integrative Imaging facility.
