Nuclear Medicine Physics

The main focus of nuclear medicine in physics is the diagnostic application of Nuclear Medicine which involves the administration trace amounts of compounds labelled with radioactivity (radionuclides) that are used to provide diagnostic information in many disease. In spite of the fact that radionuclides also have some therapeutic uses, with similar underlying physics principles, there were roughly 100 different diagnostic imaging procedures available useful to a wide variety of diagnostic tests according to study in 2006 and as of 2008, more than 30 million nuclear medicine imaging procedures were performed on a global basis. The ability of nuclear medicine to provide exquisitely sensitive measures of a wide range of biologic processes in the body, but are limited in their ability to provide biological information compared to medical imaging modalities such as x-ray imaging, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and x-ray computed tomography (CT) provides outstanding an atomic images. Studies states that in hospitals across the world. There are more than 20,000 nuclear medicine cameras capable of imaging gamma-ray-emitting radionuclides installed and more than 3,000PET scanners installed in the world performing on the order of 4 million procedures.
