  • Thyroid peroxidase antibody (Anti-TPO)
  • Free Triiodothyronine (FT3)
  • Free Thyroxine (FT4)

NUCLEAR IMAGING

This service features the most modern SPECT/CT hybrid gamma camera system in Pampanga, using the latest software from GE Healthcare System. SPECT allows the detection of abnormal processes in the body, but SPECT/CT shows where exactly the abnormalities are in the body. This also allows real-time visualization of disease processes not visible by conventional imaging like ultrasound, CT or MRI. Other services within Nuclear Imaging include:

  • Bone Scan – Detect the presence of bone metastasis in the entire body
  • Cardiac Scans – Shows which part of the heart is having problems with blood supply
  • Dacryoscintigraphy – Helps determine the cause of excessive tearing
  • Gastrointestinal Bleed Scan – Locates the site of active bleeding
  • Renal Scan – Shows which kidney is problematic
  • Thyroid Scans – Helps distinguish patients with Graves disease and those with thyroiditis
