Digital ERA: Need to Understand DICOM








Theinception of the Department of Nuclear Medicine goes back to year 2010 The OPD startedin 2011 with the weekly two days. The Gamma camera was acquired in the year2013 and since then the number of daily scans which have been performed  have both increased in number as well asindications which we have been doing the scan. The number of the OPD days hasbeen increased now we have been doing OPD for five days in a week with thepatient input of almost 45 to 50 Patients per OPD. We are treating bothhypothyroidism as well as hyperthyroidism with the help of Radioiodine. We arealso conducting special OPD for thyroid cancer patients for which we are admittingthe patient to isolation ward. We also are seeing patients for bone painpalliation and treating them with Samarium-153 therapy. In August 2018 PET CTmachine was installed and after the installation almost more than thousand PETscans have been performed for various oncological & non oncologicalindications. We are in plan for expansion for Department with other modalitieslike PET MR, Cyclotron, PET CT guided biopsy, Second Gamma Camera. We are alsoin process of starting DNB courses for which the application is under process.


1) HOD:

2) Start date of the department: Year 2009

3) About the department:

Nuclear Medicine imaging procedures, which are noninvasive, safe and painless, are used in diagnosis and management of treatment:

  1. Cancer,Heart disease,,,,
  2. Brain disorders, such as Alzheimer’s disease
  3. Gastrointestinal disorders
  4. Lung disorders
  5. Bone disorders
  6. Kidney and thyroid disorders

The Nuclear medicine facility is located in Oncology Bhawan. We are performing routine clinical work involving gamma camera SPECT-CT imaging, radionuclide low dose (on OPD basis) and high dose (inpatient therapy), as well as for student teaching and conducting interdepartmental clinical discussion/ meetings.

The government has approved one Time of Flight (TOF) PET-CT and one dual head gamma camera under consideration for the Nuclear Medicine department. The facility will be functional earliest by end of 2014.

Two room isolation ward high dose radionuclide therapy facility are functional since June, 2013.

We are providing a large range of nuclear medicine investigations as well as therapeutic services.
