Nuclear Medicine


The Nuclear Medicine Department was founded in 1992.There are one professor and one associate professoruntil 2014. The Nuclear Medicine Department focuses on the use of radiopharmaceuticalsfor diagnosis, therapy and research in oncology. We provide diagnostic imagingand therapeutic services. Educating the next generation of healthcareprofessionals in the nuclear medicine is also a major focus of the programs in nuclearmedicine graduate education and clinical training. We strive to be the best nuclearmedicine department in Chinaand to serve our hospital with distinction.


Diagnosis and/or Treatment methods

1. Positron Emission Tomography/Computerized Tomography(PET/CT) 

2. Single photon emission computed tomography/Computerized Tomography (SPECT/CT)

3. Radionuclide therapy (thyroid diseases, bone metastasis, etc.)

Our research programmers involving positron emissiontomography / Computerized Tomography (PET/CT) and single photon emission computedtomography / Computerized Tomography (SPECT) to measure different aspects of tumorbiology and function are of very high or high importance in cancer. Ourdosimetric therapy planning approaches should optimize efficacy and minimizetoxicity of targeted radionuclide therapies. 

Kind of tumor/Cancer treated and/or diagnosed

Diagnosed: All kinds of cancer

Treated: Thyroid diseases, bone metastasis, B cell lymphoma, cutaneous hemangioma,etc.
