With Nuclear Medicine, functional and molecular images are made by administering small doses of radioactive material, called radioactive tracers, which show how certain organs and tissues are functioning or reveal alterations to them at the molecular level. Nuclear medicine explorations are non-invasive and do not have adverse effects.
We have equipment for sentinel lymph node detection. This procedure allows medical staff to locate the lymph node nearest a tumor lesion to thereby perform a minimum surgical procedure required to treat the tumoral pathology.
Our service is performed by specialists in Nuclear Medicine and trained support staff. Diagnostic studies are done using radioactive materials in doses that are not harmful to patient health, which are a major help to establish certain diagnostics and treat some diseases that would otherwise require surgery to treat them.
