Nuclear Medicine


The Nuclear Medicine Department at TMH was established in 1992. It carries out routine Nuclear Medicine scans, Radioiodine therapy for Hyperthyroidism and Samarium therapy for bone pain palliation.

A dual head gamma camera replaced the older equipment in 2006, facilitating shorter imaging time. Bone densitometry will shortly become operational in the department.

Since it is the only Nuclear Medicine installation in Jamshedpur, it caters to a large number of referrals from other hospitals. Around 2500 scans are done each year.
