Speakers: Dr Nigel Williams

Nuclear medicine embraces all applications of radioactive materials in medical diagnosis, treatment and research. Gamma rays and positrons are used to provide images of organ or tissue function, and alpha and beta particles are used to treat disease. Most large hospitals in the UK have access to nuclear-medicine imaging; the main teaching hospitals offer a wide range of diagnostic and therapeutic services. This talk will describe the science and technology underlying these techniques and illustrate their importance to the patient and modern medicine.

Event type: Lecture/Talk
