The scan results are close to the benchmarks defined by the world literature on Ga-PSMA PET scans. The results below indicate the accuracy and value of the test.
from Dr. Iain Duncan… March 2021 March saw Canberra day, the Balloon Festival, and Enlighten in Canberra.The practice was busy and aside from supply shortages everything is running well. A publication in Arthroscopy showed a better pain response to PRP for partial thickness rotator cuff tears up to 3 months post injection, but no difference […]

Bone scans of the spine have become a clinically useful part of the evaluation of back pain. Uptake seen on a SPECT-CT correlates with metabolic activity in bone and the increased resolution and specificity of SPECT-CT has allowed a greater number and variety of clinically relevant findings. Most patients with back pain will have an […]
Welcome to a collection of interesting images that display characteristic features of common problems seen on ultrasound and in nuclear medicine. These can be used for private educational use but we would appreciate appropriate acknowledgement. The Foot (ultrasound and nuclear medicine) Snapshots of Nuclear Medicine
Nuclear medicine encompasses the use of medical radioisotopes to image various parts or systems in the human body. It involves injecting tiny amounts of “radiotracers” into the body to assess the functions of various organs or body systems. It is most commonly used to assess the boney skeleton, the heart, thyroid and kidneys. Unlike x-rays or […]
