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.
