About the department

The Department of Nuclear Medicine at the Medipol Mega University Hospital Istanbul offers the full range of radioisotope diagnostics and treatment of various pathologies. All procedures are carried out using ultramodern equipment, so that the patient receives a minimum dose of radiation. The department's specialists mostly perform scintigraphy, PET-CT, SPECT-CT, etc. These serve to imagine the anatomical structure and assess the function of the heart, kidneys, lungs, thyroid gland, liver, brain, skeletal bones, etc. The department is one of the few in Turkey with the cutting-edge imaging diagnostic devices, which guarantee the highest possible accuracy. The Chief Physician of the department is Prof. Dr. med. Tamer Atasever.

The department's range of medical services includes:

  • Diagnostics of respiratory diseases
    • Lung perfusion and ventilation scintigraphy (Tc99m MAA)
    • Postoperative FEV1 assessment (Tc99m MAA)
  • Diagnostics of diseases of the central nervous system
