Specialized in: nuclear medicine

The Department of Nuclear Medicine at the University Hospital Jena offers the entire spectrum of diagnosis and treatment in the field of nuclear medicine. The head of the Department is Dr. med. Martin Freesmeyer. Nuclear medicine is a branch of science, which applies safety, painless and economically advantageous methods of diagnosis and treatment of somatic diseases. The difference of nuclear medicine from other kinds of medical imaging, e.g., X-ray, lies in recording of both organ function and structure as opposed to X-ray diagnosis, which main objective includes imaging of normal and pathologic anatomy. Thus, nuclear medicine enables receiving of the medical information, which could be otherwise received only by means of surgery or more expensive diagnostic procedures.
