About Nuclear Medicine Center

 Dr. Dabagh - Dr. Sadeghi Nuclear Medicine Center has made it possible to perform most of the common scans in nuclear medicine by benefiting from the highest variety of radiopharmaceuticals. Also, by using one of the most modern, accurate and fastest gamma camera scanners, it has made it possible to perform various types of scans with all common techniques. The doctors of nuclear medicine center, Dr. Dabagh and Dr. Sadeghi, are both prominent professors of nuclear medicine in the country. and they have a high scientific rank in this specialized field, and along with other experienced and capable personnel of this center, they provide the best nuclear medicine diagnostic and treatment services for esteemed patients.

Nuclear medicine specialist

As it was said before, the doctors of Dr. Dabagh and Dr. Sadeghi Nuclear Medicine Center are among the most prominent professors in the field of nuclear medicine in the Iran. Dr. Dabagh and Dr. Sadeghi are the founders of DSNMC center. And Mrs. Dr. Garhamani and Mrs. Dr. Sabour are also prominent specialists in nuclear medicine working in this center. Both of them graduated from Mashhad University of Medical Sciences in this specialized field.

Dr. Dabagh was admitted to the field of general medicine at Tehran University of Medical Sciences in 1971. Then, after completing their studies in the field of medicine, they directly entered the specialized field of nuclear medicine and graduated in the same university in 1983.

Mr. Dr. Sadeghi is known as the father of nuclear medicine, he was ranked first in the experimental exam in 1973 and has more than 200 articles published in reputable medical journals. To read more about the biography of Dr. Ramin Sadeghi, click on the link.

experts and nurses

This center has several nuclear medicine experts, all of whom have graduated from the prestigious universities of the country, such as Mashhad and Tehran University of Medical Sciences, in the field of nuclear medicine master's degree. The nurses of the center have all graduated from the prestigious universities of the country. Also, in addition to specialized nuclear medicine nursing services, they have several years of professional work experience, especially in this specialized field.

nurse's aide

The assistant nurses of dsnmc, perform all the activities needed by the patients to prepare for the scan. These colleagues are specially trained so that patients can prepare for the scan without any discomfort.

gamma camera; The most important diagnostic tool in nuclear medicine
A gamma camera is a device that is used to produce images using rays emitted from the patient's body, which is called scintigraphy. The gamma camera consists of two main parts, the beam acquisition unit and the processing unit. The acquisition or data collection unit consists of a detector and systems that collect gamma rays and convert them into digital data that are converted into images after sending them to a processing unit. A gamma camera can have one, two or three detectors, and usually, the more detectors a gamma camera has, the shorter the imaging operation for some scans. The gamma camera at the Dr. Debagh-Dr. Sadeghi Nuclear Medicine Center has two detectors and is one of the best and most accurate gamma camera devices in the country.

Gamma camera imaging techniques

The images that are produced using the gamma camera are divided into three general groups: static or static images, dynamic or dynamic images, and SPECT or three-dimensional images. Some scans, such as thyroid scans, are static, others are dynamic, such as kidney scans with DTPA/EC, and another group of scans, such as aspect or three-dimensional heart scans. In some cases, a study involves the use of all three forms of imaging, an example of which is a three-phase bone scan with SPECT. Static or dynamic images are known as planar or two-dimensional images. Usually, the gamma camera remains stationary during the production of two-dimensional and planar images, and in some scans, such as whole-body bone scans, the bed or gamma camera may move slowly depending on the model of the device.

Advantages of nuclear medicine imaging with a gamma camera

In imaging using a gamma camera, unlike MRI scanners, the patient's surroundings are not completely closed, and in most scans, the patient's head is placed outside the machine. Therefore, patients who are afraid of closed spaces (claustrophobia) should not worry about this. Also, performing nuclear medicine scans is not associated with the loud noise of the machine and does not make the patient anxious.
