What multimodal imaging technologies are applied to our patients?
So-called multimodal (also called hybrid) imaging became extremely popular in past 10-15 years: SPECT/CT, PET/CT, and PET/MRI.
During diagnostic nuclear medicine procedures, which are functional, the distribution of a specific “radioactive contrast” in organs is investigated by imaging receptors or other specific cellular targets.
Currently in our department we perform nuclear medicine procedures using hybrid SPECT / CT gamma camera. By combining these studies with CT (computed tomography) or MRI (magnetic resonance imaging), we can precisely localize lesions and the extension of the disease - thus making the examination much more informative.

Diagnostic nuclear medicine procedures, 2016
760 radionuclide therapy procedures were performed in Therapy Section in 2016, the major part of them (746) consisted of thyroid cancer treatment using radioactive iodine I-131.
