The department performs a wide range of functional-morphological diagnostic and therapeutic methods using a variety of open radioactive sources. It performs a full range of scintigraphic diagnostics, including hybrid positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) and the single photon emission computed tomography/computer tomography (SPECT/CT). The workplace is equipped with a modern hybrid digital PET/CT scanner with a 64-bit computer tomograph and two modern hybrid digital SPECT/CT scanners which perform diagnostics and monitor the effects of treating malignant tumours and inflammations. Scintigraphy of joints and of organs such as the thyroid gland and kidneys is performed by means of a digital SPECT gamma camera. The same instrument is also used in the diagnosis. Moreover, the department has a special section for the use of radioactive iodine in the treatment of tumours and hyperthyroidism.
Departmental staff members, in addition to taking part in research projects and clinical trials, are also involved in teaching at the Charles University Faculties of Medicine and Pharmacy in Hradec Králové and the Faculty of Health Studies in Pardubice.
