How does nuclear medicine cure diseases? Can anyone give an example of how nuclear medicine is used to cure diseases? I don't understand how it works.

How does nuclear medicine cure diseases? Can anyone give an example of how nuclear medicine is used to cure diseases? I don't understand how it works.

The: The best example of how nuclear medicine is used to cure diseases is treatment of thyroid cancer or graves' disease (a form of hyperthyroidism). In both cases the goal is to destroy thyroid tissue. The thyroid gland contains a large amount of iodine which it uses to produce thyroid hormone. Once iodine is ingested, a large amount is concentrated within the thyroid gland. Nuclear medicine harnesses this principal to destroy thyroid tissue by giving the patient a radioactive form of iodine (i-131). This radioactive iodine is concentrated in the thyroid gland. The isotope primarily releases beta radiation which destroys the surrounding tissue (most of which is thyroid tissue). If there is thyroid cancer in the area, the cancer is also destroyed. ...Read more
