Mpilo Central Hospital is set to become the first Zimbabwean medical institution to offer nuclear medicine which will result in advanced diagnosis and treatment of cancer, heart, lung, kidney diseases among others.

Head of the Nuclear Medicine Department, Dr Xolani Ndluvu said that they had finally got the licence and the duty free certificate to purchase quality control equipment and they are ready to administer nuclear medicine. He said that they were expected to start administering nuclear medicine but they are yet to acquire a technetium — 99m generator.

Ncube said the nuclear medicine will also benefit those suffering from coronary artery disease, hyperthyroidism and help in lung ventilation and perfusion imaging. He stated that they will also be able to do liver functional imaging and other diseases.
