Nuclear medicine is a branch of medicine that uses small amounts of radioactive isotopes to help diagnose or treat a variety of diseases, including certain types of cancers, heart disease, gastrointestinal, endocrine, neurological disorders and other abnormalities within the body.
Diagnostic nuclear medicine procedures consists of scintigraphic (in vivo) imaging and radioimmunological (in vitro) assays. Nuclear Medicine diagnostic scans offer unique information, including details on both the function and anatomic structure of the body.
The radioimmunoassay (in vitro) applications of Nuclear Medicine involve the use of radioactive tracers(radioactive isotope I-125) in the measurement of various substances(like hormones and tumor markers) in the blood serum or other appropriate biological sample without the patient being exposed to radiation. The advantages of these procedures are the extremely high sensitivity, specificity and repeatability.
Since 2006, our business has included the promotion and distribution of Radiopharmaceuticals and Nuclear Medicine Radioisotopes ensuring, in this way, our strong presence in hospitals and diagnostic centers and, also, making the most of our existing dynamic network, as well as of our cooperation and product distribution agreements with internationally acknowledged firms.
