Nuclear medicine can help diagnose serious or chronic conditions.
Nuclear medicine imaging is carried out by administering small amounts of radioactive tracers. The radiation is then detected by a gamma camera or counter. We also offer SPECT and SPECT/CT scans, which are nuclear imaging procedures that help create 3D pictures. For some scans, a low dose CT is obtained to help with localisation of abnormalities, such as damage, injuries or cancer. It can also compensate for gamma ray absorption within your body.
We are proud to facilitate Consultant nuclear medicine physicians and radiologists who can help test, diagnose, and treat or manage your neurological issues to help improve your quality of life.
The nuclear medicine department at our hospital offer treatment and diagnostic testing for a wide range of chronic and life-threatening diseases and conditions including:

Our team will strive to reduce your symptoms through effective treatment.
An amyloid scan is used to determine the anatomy and function of your heart to find the extent of amyloid deposits. Amyloid deposits are a build-up of an abnormal protein in the body. They can make it difficult for your organs and tissues to function properly.
The first appointment lasts for 30 minutes. A tracer is injected into a vein in your arm or hand, which is like having a blood test. The second appointment, three hours later, lasts for approximately 45 minutes and is when the images are acquired.
This test is used to assess the blood flow to your heart wall muscle (myocardium) using a radioactive tracer. There are two parts: the ‘stress’ where the heart is stressed by exercise or medication and the ‘rest’ scan, where the heart’s natural flow is observed. The test identifies the differences in the blood flow to your heart wall muscle between ‘stress’ and ‘rest’. This helps identify what may be causing your symptoms.
This is an examination of the kidneys which gives information on their size, shape and position. Their function may also be measured. DMSA stands for dimercaptosuccinic acid. This substance has a radioactive tracer attached, which localises in your kidneys and is scanned by a Gamma Camera.
A SeHCAT study is a procedure that measures how well your body is absorbing bile salts. Bile salts are made in the liver to help digest fats in the small bowel and then should be absorbed back into your body. Sometimes damage and disease mean this cannot happen properly.
As part of this study, you will swallow a gelatine capsule which contains a small dose of radioactive material bound to a bile salt. This will not make you feel any different. You will be required to come back two hours later, then seven days later.
