There are internal test (PET-CT, SPECT-CT) which put small amount of radioactive isotope into the body to scan, treatment (cancer of thyroid gland) and external (specimen) test to analyze by reacting specimen
- Internal test (scanning) - single photon emission computerized tomography (SPECT and SPECT-CT), Breast-Specific Gamma Camera, positron emission tomography imaging (PET-CT)
- Radioactive isotope treatment (cancer of thyroid gland) - When putting radioactive isotope(I-131) into our body, it will gather to thyroid and cancer and the radioactivity from it will destroy tumor cell in the body
- External (specimen) test - External (specimen) test is the test to check the content in the specimen by collecting specimen such as blood or urine, etc. from patients and reflecting the specimen and radioactive isotope.
