It is a process known more widely as molecular imaging and molecular therapy. The process of nuclear medicine involves introducing small amounts of radioactive substances to the body, either orally or intravenously, in order to be traced through the nuclear medicine doctor's use of extremely sensitive scanners and diagnostic equipment that detect and locate the radiation within the patient's body. The detection can take several forms, including; 'nuclear medicine whole body scan', 'nuclear medicine myocardial perfusion scan', 'nuclear medicine parathyroid scan', 'normal hepatobiliary scan (HIDA scan)', and 'normal pulmonary ventilation and perfusion (V/Q) scan' The best nuclear medicine physicians in India are used to diagnose, and occasionally provide therapy for, conditions such as coronary heart disease, coronary stenosis, heart attack recovery, heart transplant rejection, respiratory and blood-flow problems, cancer, non-Hodgkins lymphoma, bone fractures/infections, arthritis, metastic bone disease, prosthetic joint problems, bone tumors etc. Nuclear medicine specialists are also used to provide data on abnormalities of the brain, like seizures, memory loss, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease and brain tumors.
