Nuclear medicine

Nuclear medical examinations are used to examine the metabolism of individual organs. Classical examples of nuclear medical examinations are, for instance, examinations of the thyroid, kidneys, bones, heart and many other organs.

Imaging takes place by means of a state-of-the-art "two-headed camera", which permits particularly precise images of the organs to be obtained quickly.

To perform the examination, a special "contrast agent" is injected into the patient's veins which accumulates in the target organ, thus permitting imaging.
