Quantum Radiology is at the forefront of utilisation of modern developments in Nuclear Medicine, with the state-of-the-art GE Discovery NM/CT 670 SPECT/CT imaging technology installed in our practice. The GE Discovery NM/CT 670 SPECT/CT provides enhanced imaging results whilst maintaining an ultra low dose.
Nuclear Medicine uses very small amounts of radioactive isotopes, usually attached to a radiopharmaceutical to allow images to be taken of various organs in the body. At Medical Imaging Erina our GE Discovery NM/CT 670 SPECT/CT has ASiR Technology which allows increased image quality while reducing the dose required.
At Medical Imaging Erina our Nuclear Medicine camera provides a broad selection of Nuclear Medicine Imaging protocols. Our technical staff are happy to discuss with you the specific procedure requested by your doctor and any preparation necessary.
Nuclear Medicine is extremely safe because the radioactive isotopes used are quickly eliminated from the body through its natural functions. At Medical Imaging Erina the radiation dose necessary for a scan is always kept to a minimum whilst still providing quality images.
If you are pregnant or suspect that you may be, please advise our staff before the test is performed, as special precautions may have to be taken.
