Home Nuclear Medicine Scintigraphy Throat Thyroid

Scintigraphy is the measurement and imaging of the radioactively labeled substances (radiopharmaceuticals) described above in the body using a gamma camera to visualize organ function. This takes the form of individual images (e.g., thyroid scintigraphy), whole-body images (e.g., skeletal scintigraphy), or serial (dynamic) images (e.g., renal scintigraphy). Scintigraphy can be used to test the metabolic function of virtually all organ systems.

Information Questionnaire

You will need to fill out the questionnaire.

The examinations consist of three phases:

In the preparation phase, the radioactive substance is specifically prepared for each examination and then administered to the patient (usually intravenously).

The technical phase involves the performance of scintigraphy, SPECT, or PET imaging, including image evaluation.

Subsequently, the information phase takes place, which involves specialist evaluation and reporting. These examinations are conducted by the Institute for Nuclear Medicine Hernals GmbH & CoKG.

No contrast agent will be administered.

Some health insurance companies will reimburse you for the costs of the examination:

Thyroid Care Center

The thyroid gland is a small, hormone-active organ.

Despite its small size, diseases of the thyroid gland often lead to a variety of symptoms. They affect the activity of the metabolism, the cardiovascular system, and the gastrointestinal tract, but can also affect the nerves and psyche, causing discomfort.

Both functional disorders (hypothyroidism = underactivity, hyperthyroidism = overactivity) and tumor-like diseases are very common. However, early diagnosis and timely therapy open up a good prognosis for thyroid diseases (e.g. goiter, thyroiditis, Hashimoto’s disease, Graves’ disease, thyroid cancer).

In the case of abnormal findings, we ensure a clear and reliable diagnosis within the shortest possible time with the help of the latest technology and established cutting-edge medicine. We accompany you from suspicion to diagnosis and, if necessary, through therapy to aftercare.
