Nuclear medicine involves a scan or test to show how various parts of your body are working.
You receive a very small amount of radiation, similar to an X-ray, that can be picked up by a scanner.
Types of scans and tests we offer include:
- diagnostic imaging
- cardiac (heart) stress testing
- children's imaging
- hybrid imaging
- osteoporosis screening
- non-cancer thyroid testing
- thyroid cancer therapy
- neuroendocrine testing
- radium therapy for prostate cancer
- radionuclide therapy
There is accommodation available for people attending the nuclear medicine department for treatment at Guy's Hospital and St Thomas' Hospital. Find out more information about:
