162536 - What can Nuclear Medicine bring to the table?

  • : Online

To identify and discuss what Nuclear Medicine studies offer amongst the GP practice and to understand the results and limitations of common studies.

Relevance to General Practice

It is important that general practitioners, being the first point of contact for patients be aware of the different imaging modalities available for patient diagnosis and disease prevention as well as the risks and benefits for each. 

This educational event will provide an opportunity for GP's to improve their management of patients by educating them on Nuclear Medicine techniques such as SPECT CT, PET CT and DEXA. We will present various case studies explaining the role of Nuclear Medicine in the clinical settings and will discuss their results and limitations.

Learning outcomes
  • Educate patients of Nuclear Imaging on the positives & negatives of their procedure, including the radiation dose of radioactive isotopes used.
  • Provide patient education on the importance of bone health and the early detection of Osteoporosis.
  • Identify a situation where a patient with chest pain would benefit from a nuclear imaging procedure.
  • Develop a comprehensive diagnosis & management plan for a patient who has ongoing abdominal pain.
