“I found out that I needed an operation for a back problem which was causing severe pain to my left leg from the sciatic nerve. After speaking to my GP and realizing I was getting nowhere I decided to take the matter into my own hands as I could hardly walk. After speaking to private consultants and realizing that without private medical insurance I was not going to be seen to in this country without shelling out around £20,000 I decided to look elsewhere. I decided to look into having the operation privately in India and was fortunate to come across Mediescapes India. From my initial enquiry when I e-mailed my MRI results to Mediescapes India I was amazed ..more

Nuclear Medicines in India
Suggested Hospitals / Clinics
Our Medical Consultant’s Panel

Nuclear medicine is now commonplace. As it involves use of radioactive isotopes in very small doses in diagnosing and treatment of diseases, radioactive medicine injected or administered orally and the distribution in the organ is scanned using a Gamma camera. Tariffs are low starting from US$ 95 for Thallium rest (SPECT), US$ 43 for lung perfusion and venogram of upper or lower limbs, US$ 335 for Ventilation study, US$ 40 for a whole body skeletal study and US4 20 for Tc-99m Thyroid scan. Various non-cardiac planar / SPECT studies for bone, thyroid, liver and lungs scanning functions are performed at specialized centers in India. Diagnostic imaging of the brain, stomach, kidneys, heart, adrenal glands as well as sites of occult infection with the help of sophisticated Gamma Camera with tomographic facilities linked to computer systems can also be performed at many of these centers.

Our associated Department of Nuclear Medicine is equipped with the latest gamma camera assisted by an ultra-sensitive fast computer and is managed by highly trained & competent medical and technical experts. Our procedures commonly called (Scintigraphic investigations or scan) provide valuable functional-information (to a certain extent structural information as well) that can enable physicians / surgeons to make an early diagnosis. These tests are relatively safe, painless and are considered to be among the safest diagnostic tests available.

Nuclear Medicine
Nuclear medicine began approximately 50 years ago and has evolved into a major medical specialty for both diagnosis and therapy of serious disease. More than 3,900 hospital-based nuclear medicine departments in the United States perform over 10 million nuclear medicine imaging and therapeutic procedures each year. Despite its integral role in patient care, nuclear medicine is still often confused with other imaging procedures, including general radiology, CT, and MRI.

Nuclear medicine studies document organ and function and structure, in contrast to conventional radiology, which creates images based upon anatomy. Many of the nuclear medicine studies can measure the degree of function present in an organ, often times eliminating the need for surgery. Moreover, nuclear medicine procedures often provide important information that allows the physician to detect and treat a disease early in its course when there may be more success. It is nuclear medicine that can best be used to study the function of a damaged heart or restriction of blood flow to parts of the brain. The liver, kidneys, thyroid gland, and many other organs are similarly imaged.

Our associated Department of Nuclear medicine are among the most recognized center in Bangalore and has strived to provide the best of the treatment and always has looked out to incorporate the latest techniques and technology in Nuclear Medicines.

Our nuclear medicine department offers a wide spectrum of Radionuclide imaging procedures and some of its applications are given below:

High risk patients having strong family history of heart disease/ DM/Hypertension.

Equivocal/ false Treadmill test.

To rule out impending ischemia in other territories for future cardiac events in patients recovering from acute MI.

For assessment of viable myocardium in patients with old MI.

Follow up of patients who have undergone CABG/Post angioplasty

To evaluate ventricular dysfunction in patients receiving CARDIO-TOXIC drugs.

Services that our associated Department of Nuclear Medicine and Imaging routinely does;

 Thyroid Cancer Treatment
Thyroid cancer is a thyroid neoplasm that is malignant. It can be treated with radioactive iodine which is given after surgical resection of the thyroid gland (Thyroidectomy). It has very good prognosis as compared to other malignancies. Patients can attend Disease free status and lead normal life. Three times more common in females, this cancer is seen more in young females.

Nuclear Medicine & Imaging
A Nuclear Medicine study assesses organ function and identifies the presence of disease. The study uses small amounts of radioactive substances known as tracers, which are designed to target and image a specific area of the body. This type of imaging is performed by a Nuclear Medicine Technologist (a technologist who is trained in Nuclear Medicine) and a Nuclear Medicine Physician (a doctor who specialises in Nuclear Medicine). Nuclear Medicine imaging equipment is very specialised and is available at our associated Centre.

Nuclear Oncology & Treatments
Expertise in managing other cases requiring Nuclear Medicine Therapies such as Samarium treatment for metastatic bone pain management; Neuroblastoma, Medullary Ca-Thyroid and Pheochromocytoma therapies. Yttrium based therapies for Intra-tumour radiation and synovectomies. Targeted antibodies labeled imaging & therapies for malignancies. Treat Liver cancers and metastatic disease with 90-Y Colloid Microspheres.

Molecular Imaging PET CT Scanning
A person with suspicion of cancer… is the first suitable candidate as the PET scan can be useful in deciding whether the cancer is present or not. Patients having heart problems, is another group which benefit from a PET scan. After a heart attack, the heart muscle gets damaged. But every time the damage may not total and there can be “viable” part of the heart muscle, which can be salvaged by angioplasty or by-pass surgery. PET scan helps the cardiologist to decide how much is still viable and blood supply can be restored using appropriate methods. PET scanning can also be used to evaluate degenerative brain disorders, dementias, and is very useful in understanding brain tumors.
