Nuclear medicine has revolutionized medical imaging, allowing doctors to diagnose and treat various diseases effectively. With the use of small amounts of radioactive material, this branch of medical imaging provides valuable insights into the body’s structure and function. At DHPL Travels, we offer state-of-the-art PET Scan services that are safe, painless, and cost-effective.

PET-CT Scan (Positron Emission Tomography)
One of our key services is the PET-CT Scan, a cutting-edge imaging technique that allows us to identify abnormalities and assess a patient’s condition accurately. Before the scan, our Consultant Radiologists meet with each patient to discuss their medical history and design personalized protocols. To ensure accurate results, we assess the patient’s blood sugar and serum creatinine levels. All that’s required is fasting for 4 to 6 hours before the scan.
The Benefits of Nuclear Medicine
Nuclear medicine offers a unique approach to diagnosis and treatment:
- Diagnostic and therapeutic practice: Controlled amounts of radioactive material are used for the precise diagnosis and treatment of various diseases such as cancer, heart disease, gastrointestinal and endocrine disorders, and neurological abnormalities.
- Comprehensive information: Unlike other imaging procedures, nuclear medicine provides insights into both the structure and function of the body, allowing doctors to gather invaluable information.
- Non-invasive and cost-effective: Nuclear medicine imaging eliminates the need for surgery or expensive diagnostic tests, making it a safe and affordable option for patients.
- Early detection: By detecting abnormalities at an early stage, nuclear medicine can identify diseases long before they become apparent through other diagnostic tests.
