Nuclear medicine is a medical speciality that uses small amounts of radioactive material in the diagnosis and treatment of the disease in early stage like heart disease, neurological disorders, several types of cancer and other abnormalities of the body. Nuclear medicine procedures pinpoint the molecular activity within the body and they offer the potential to identify disease in its earliest stages as well as a patient’s immediate response to therapeutic interventions. It gives the medical information in a safe and painless manner that may otherwise be unavailable, requires surgery or more expensive and invasive diagnostic tests. A pharmaceutical is attached to a small quantity of radioisotopes and the combination is called radiopharmaceutical. There are different radiopharmaceuticals available for different parts of the body and their use depends on the condition to be diagnosed and treated.
