It is the first Nuclear Medicine Centre to the north of Cochin. This is a leap in diagnostic imaging science for the functional evaluation of various organ systems. The Department is equipped with the following multiple facilities:

Gamma Camera with SPECT Facility
It is a unique device for functional evaluation of organ systems. The procedure is very simple and safe which involves a peripheral intravenous injection / oral administration of the radiopharmaceuticals for the entire study procedures. This can be done as out- patient procedures like:

  • Telephonic appointment
  • Reports will be available on the same day
  • Cross sectional imaging can be done
  • Highly sensitive modality in general
  • Known complementary role to other imaging modalities
  • No adverse reactions to the administered radiopharmaceuticals
  • Available for most of the organ systems of the body

Diagnostic Imaging encompasses the following:

  • Whole body bone scan
  • Tc99m Thyroid Scan
  • MUGA  Scan
  • Cardiac SPECT
  • Tc99m DTPA  Scan
  • Tc99m DMSA Renal Scan
  • Lung Perfusion Scan
  • Gallium Scan
  • Radio Iodine Scan

Some of the well known applications include
A. Estimation of Split Renal Function
B. Renovascular Hypertension
C. Renal Transplant Evaluation
D. Metastatic Evaluation to Bones
E. Coronary Artery Disease Evaluation
F. Stroke
G. GI Bleed, Bile Leaks 
H. Neonatal Cholestasis Syndrome
I. Functional Evaluation of Thyroid Gland
