The development of nuclear medicine as a medical specialty has resulted in the large-scale application of its effective imaging methods in everyday practice as a primary method of diagnosis. The introduction of positron-emitting tracers (PET) has represented another fundamental leap forward in the ability of nuclear medicine to exert a profound impact on patient management, while the ability Cited by: 6. SIGNIFICANT DISCOVERIES. The modern era of nuclear medicine is an outgrowth of the charge to the Atomic Energy Commission “to exploit nuclear energy to promote human health” (Atoms for Peace Program).For more than 50 years, the AEC and later the Department of Energy have supported high-risk research and development of nuclear medicine technology and have supplied radionuclides to the.
Imaging in Nuclear Medicine. One problem with the human body is that it is opaque, and looking inside is generally painful. In the past, exploratory surgery was one common way to look inside the body, but today doctors can use a huge array of non-invasive techniques. Some of these techniques include things like X-rays, MRI scanners, CAT scans, ultrasound and so on. 17 Advantages and Disadvantages of Nuclear Medicine Nuclear medicine is a medical specialty that involves the application of radioactive substances to help in the diagnosis or treatment of disease. It records radiation that emits from the body instead of using an external source that generates it, such as an x-ray machine, to help doctors.
Molecular imaging includes the field of nuclear medicine, which uses very small amounts of radioactive materials (radiopharmaceuticals) to diagnose and treat disease. In nuclear medicine imaging, the radiopharmaceuticals are detected by special types of cameras that work with computers to provide very precise pictures of the area of the body. The Role of Computers in the Nuclear Medicine Laboratories H. I. Glass There are several methods of using com- puters in nuclear medicine laboratories. These include the use of special-purpose computers on individual apparatus, linking of apparatus to a central computer, or the processing of all data off-line on a batch-processing : H.I. Glass.

This is a developing chapter for a Wikibook entitled Basics Physics of Nuclear Medicine. Computers are widely used in almost all areas of Nuclear Medicine today. The main application for our purposes is imaging acquisition and processing.
Nuclear medicine is a medical specialty involving the application of radioactive substances in the diagnosis and treatment of r medicine imaging, in a sense, is "radiology done inside out" or "endoradiology" because it records radiation emitting from within the body rather than radiation that is generated by external sources like addition, nuclear medicine scans differ ICDPCS: C.
What is Nuclear Medicine Typically Used For. Nuclear medicine can be used in both a diagnostic and therapeutic capacity.
As a diagnostic tool, it can help physicians determine a diagnosis or judge the effectiveness of treatment. As a therapeutic tool, nuclear medicine can treat some cancers and problems with the thyroid, among other conditions.
Nuclear medicine exams use a radioactive material called a radiopharmaceutical or radiotracer. This material is injected into the bloodstream, swallowed or inhaled as a gas. The material accumulates in the area of your body under examination, where it gives off a.

Upon completion, the technologist should be able to list the types of acquisition modes for nuclear medicine studies, choose the best File Size: 2MB.
Nuclear medicine is used to diagnose a wide range of conditions. The patient will inhale, swallow, or be injected with a radiopharmaceutical. This is a radioactive material. Digital computers were introduced in nuclear medicine practice in the mids, but did not become an integral part in both imaging and nonimaging applications until the mids.
In imaging modalities, the computers are used to quantitate the distribution of radiopharmaceuticals in an object both Author: Gopal B. Saha.
