Nuclear medicine diagnoses
In nuclear medicine, we administer weakly radioactively labelled substances in order to visualise biological processes in the body. For example, scintigraphy can be used to assess the function of the thyroid gland, the blood flow in the heart muscle or the metabolism of the bone.
A slightly different technique, “positron emission tomography” (PET/CT), is mainly used to examine tumour diseases. We can offer you both procedures to suit your needs.
At our location in the Rotkreuzklinikum in Nymphenburg, we offer scintigraphic examinations. The most frequently examined organs are the thyroid gland, the lungs, the heart, the kidneys and the skeleton.
PET/CT with F18-FDG and PSMA
PET/CT combines two examinations in one device. Using “positron emission tomography” (PET), we can visualise biochemical processes in the body. Computed tomography (CT) shows us changes in the organs using X-rays.
