We contribute to a full range of Nuclear radiology studies, to diagnose conditions, evaluate treatment response, and check for disease recurrence, for instance Biliary scans, Bone scans, Bone density mineral analysis, Nuclear cardiology, positron emission tomography (PET), single-photon emission computerized tomography (SPECT) scan, Sentinel lymphoscintigraphy and Thyroid scans.
UHG deliver for the first time in Sudan the most advanced nuclear medicine technologist which are;
Special camera and imaging techniques used in nuclear medicine include the gamma camera and single-photon emission-computed tomography (SPECT).
The PET scanner is a large machine with a round, doughnut shaped hole in the middle, similar to a CT or MRI unit. Within this machine are multiple rings of detectors that record the emission of energy from the radiotracer in your body.
The hot lab is a specially designed room where the radiopharmaceuticals are delivered, stored and prepared. UHG is maintaining a standard for hot lab procedures to optimize the patient care and minimize radiation exposure to all nuclear medicine personnel, patients, public, as well as environment.
Members of our department are seen as thought-leaders in the area of nuclear medicine and have contributed to the design and delivery of educational initiatives and safety and quality improvement.
Nuclear medicine radiologists (nuclear radiologists) are physicians who use radioactive materials to diagnose and treat diseases. They employ different techniques as scintigraphy, which produce images of the body's organs or to visualize certain diseases.
Our radiologists are expert in nuclear medicine studies with maximum adherence to the international polices and procedures.
