Nuclear Medicine

The London Clinic has a state of the art imaging department, providing our patients and referring doctors with a comprehensive range of investigations to cater for our patients’ individual needs.  Our consultants have access to some of the most advanced technology available. As part of our imaging facilities we have a gamma camera and PET CT scanner, offering a full range of examinations.

Nuclear medicine uses radioactive pharmaceuticals to produce images of various organs of the body as well as disease. Not only can we look at the structure of an organ, but also how it works. The images are developed based on the detection of energy emitted from a radioactive substance which is given to the patient either intravenously or by mouth.
