Division of Nuclear Medicine

What is the Division of Nuclear Medicine?

The Division of Nuclear Medicine provides nuclear imaging and radiotherapy by physicians of the Department of Radiology and related clinical departments, in collaboration with radiological technologists, nurses, and receptionists. Nuclear imaging can accommodate widely diverse subjects of functional imaging such as in the brain, bone, heart, gastrointestinal tract, and urinary organs. All studies are diagnosed by radiologists. Radioisotope therapy for thyroid cancer, Basedow’s disease, neuroendocrine tumor, prostate cancer are performed in our division. We started peptide receptors radionuclide therapy (PRRT) for neuroendocrine tumors earliest in the Chugoku-Shikoku region from December 2021. We also provide brachytherapy for cervical cancer, prostate cancer, breast cancer, tongue cancer and so on.
We make an effort to provide high-quality medical care with a proper safety management.
