Anmeldebereich Team Nuki

You'll find lots of useful information about our practice, our stuff and range of service we provide. We are specialized on treating thyroid nodules with Echotherapy, a new method, using high intensitiy focused ultrasoud (HIFU).
Another specialty ot our pracice is the therapy of inflammatory arthropathies with radiosynoviorthesis, shortened: RSO.
Lean more about our practice as well as other therapy and examination methods at "range of service" or just click here.

In the region of Heilbronn, Germany, the Seeberger family has been active for around 40 years in the field of radiology and nuclear medicine.

We set a high value on high-quality interior and a friendly togetherness.
The inclusion of the newest medical knowledge as well as regular further trainings are a given to offer our patients of all age classes a broad spectrum of nuclear medical diagnostic and therapy techniques.

We offer a broad spectrum on nuclear medical diagnostic and therapy techniques.
Under the heading "service range" you'll find a detailed list of our range of service as well as a short description of the examination and therapy procedures we offer.

What is nuclear medicine?

With this article, we will explain in a few short sentenses what nuclear medicine is and what it is used/needed for.

Nuclear medicine is a relatively young area of expertise.
It concerns itself with the use of exposed radioactive substances for diagnostic and therapeutic usage on humans.

With nuclear medical methods it is - on one hand - possible to visualize and thereby localize physiological and biochemical processes respectively pathological transformation for the naked eye, on the other hand it allows the physician to quantify the extent of dysfunction.
Since function changes often hurry ahead of morphological changes, it is possible to diagnose a disease quite early in the process, long before changes are visible on diagnostic radiology or on ultrasound (example: osteomyelitis = bone marrow inflammation).
Therefore, nuclear medicine has its specialty in function diagnostics, meaning the expressiveness of nuclear medical images lies in the display of dysfunctions (= disease).

In nuclear medical diagnostics, patients are only injected with a low dose of radioactive substances. This so-called “radio tracers” are mostly applied through an easily accessible vein - similar to a blood test done by your family doctor - and usually are without side effects. After the injection, the radio tracer is observed and followed on its way through the body by a highly sensitive cam.
Due to natural radioactive decay as well as secretion via urinary and bowel passage, a fast elimination of the radio tracer from the body occurs.
The radiation exposure that occurs at different nuclear medical examinations is well within range of critical load known from radiology diagnostics, most of the time way below.
With modern high-resolution cam systems and corresponding imaging software it is possible to produce detailed imaging of the human body with a so-called Gamma Cam.
