Nuclear medicine is one of the the most progressive areas of modern medicine and has been studying the possibilities of application of radionuclide pharmaceutical drugs in the diagnosis and treatment of various human diseases, as well as the practical application of the developed methods. Nuclear Medicine also includes such cancer treatments as radiation therapy and stereotactic radiosurgery

Development of Nuclear medicine most actively are applied in oncology and cardiology. Nuclear medicine techniques provide invaluable assistance in all phases of cancer treatment and successfully carry out the following tasks:

  • Early diagnosis of cancer at a stage when other methods do not show the results;
  • Identification of pathological neoplasms of various histological type;
  • Obtaining reliable and accurate data about the properties of the malignant process;
  • Diagnostics of metastases and tumor recurrence;
  • Forecasting the outcome of oncological disease;
  • Effective and safe treatment of cancer in children and adults;
  • Evaluation of the effectiveness of anticancer therapy;
  • Comprehensive assessment of the state of the human body during the checkups and screening programs.

Modern Nuclear medicine features an arsenal of radioactive pharmaceutical drugs, by which to explore the functional state of practically all organs and systems of the human body. Most nuclear medicine studies is carried out using isotopes of iodine (I-131) and technetium (Tc-99m). Diagnosis of cancer, conducted by methods nuclear medicine (radionuclide diagnosis), allows to obtain results of high accuracy.
