Nuclear Medicine

The Nuclear Medicine Department is within the Clinical Support Health Group and part of the Medical Physics Service.

Nuclear Medicine uses radioactive tracers to diagnose and treat a wide range of diseases.  Most of the diagnostic nuclear medicine procedures involve imaging with a gamma camera and the Trust has 3 gamma cameras, two at Castle Hill Hospital and one at Hull Royal Infirmary.

Nuclear Medicine therapy is provided mostly on the Castle Hill site either on an out-patient basis or in the purpose built therapy suite on Ward 31 of the Queen’s Centre for Oncology and Haematology.
