Molecular Nuclear Medicine (MNM) is a medical specialty that uses trace amounts of active substances, called radiopharmaceuticals, to diagnose, treat and monitor diseases. MNM is non-invasive and provides physicians with critical information that may otherwise be unavailable without surgery or more invasive diagnostic procedures. The technique works by injecting targeted radiopharmaceuticals into the patient’s body that accumulate in particular organs or lesions and reveal specific biochemical processes.
MNM can be divided in two branches: Molecular Nuclear Diagnostics (MND) and Molecular Nuclear Therapy (MNT).
