Nuclear Medicine

Molecular Nuclear Medicine (MNM) is a medical specialty that uses trace amounts of active radioactive compounds to treat diseases such as cancer and create functional images of organs and lesions. The technique works by injecting into the patient’s body targeted radiopharmaceuticals that accumulate in the organs or lesions and reveal specific biochemical processes. MNM can be divided in two branches: Molecular Nuclear Diagnostics and Molecular Nuclear Therapy.
