    PSMA Scan for prostate cancer

    What is a PSMA scan? PSMA stands for prostate specific membrane antigen, which is  a complex protein found in the cell walls of many types of cell, but greatly increased in prostate cancer. Radio-tracers have been developed to attach to the antigen and thus show up abnormal cells, usually related to prostate cancer. A nuclear […]

    What is quantitative bone imaging?

    Quantitative bone imaging is where we measure exactly the amount of tracer in a given volume of interest. This capability has only now become possible with new technological and computer analysis techniques with the use of a specially calibrated xSPECT gamma camera. When analysing the data, we express the result in SUV (standard uptake values), which is […]

    Back pain and Bone scans

    PECT-CT 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.

    Liver Elastography

    What is liver elastography? Liver elastography is also known as shearwave elastography and is a novel technique of assessing tissue stiffness and hence fibrosis.  This technique measures the speed of ultrasound waves as they pass through the liver. The “shearwave” is a perpendicular wave produced as a result of a generated ultrasound pulse through the tissues. […]
