We offer specialized medical equipment for cancer treatment
Early diagnosis is essential for the success of a treatment.
Nuclear medicine studies help find tumors and see how much the disease has spread in the body, even before the patient shows symptoms. They can also be used to find out if the treatment being used is effective for the patient.
Diagnoses are achieved using small amounts of radioactive substances linked to radiopharmaceuticals, with the aim of incorporating these substances in the biological processes of the patient. In this way, the body tissues that are affected by certain diseases (such as cancer) can absorb more or less of the radiopharmaceutical than normal tissues.
The function of equipment such as PET and SPECT is to collect the pattern of radioactivity in biological processes to create images that show the path of this radiopharmaceutical and determine where it accumulates.
