Hi … n nIt was only recently that I heard about nuclear therapy. What is nuclear therapy? Is this treatment method only for treating cancer? And what is the percentage chance of recovery from that treatment?
Nuclear therapy is a medical method in which nuclear energy (atomic nucleus) is used to detect, investigate, diagnose or as a treatment, for example to detect disease earlier and more accurately, for example on a PET scan.
In some types of cancer, nuclear therapy is quite effective, but for nuclear treatment itself it depends on the stage or type of cancer and not all cancers can be treated with this method. Apart from cancer, nuclear therapy is also being studied so that it can be used in one of them is a thyroid lump. Regarding how big the chance of cure, of course, will vary for each individual depending on the type and condition of the patient. You can also consult further with a nuclear medicine specialist where there are currently several major hospitals in the capital that have a special clinic for nuclear medicine specialists.
