Department’s Brief History

Medicine in our old hospital building in Duacinari. At the time, mainly throid patients were being evaluated with a rectilinear scanner and a thyroid uptake device. There was also a RIA Laboratory within Endocrinology Outpatient Clinics.
The Department of Nuclear Medicine was founded in 1983 and continued its practises with the same devices. The first gamma camera was obtained in 1992 when the hospital moved to its new location Gorukle campus and all scintigraphic  procedures were started to be carried out. In 1995 we bought our second gamma camera. With the establishment of our PET/CT device in 2006, we started 18-F FDG studies. We proceeded with Ga-68 studies in 2016.
We are at the present operating with two gamma cameras and one PET/CT device.
