Second Public Lecture Series on Nuclear Sciences and Technologies

The Practice of Nuclear Medicine in Namibia

Abstract
Nuclear medicine plays a pivotal role in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases, including cancer. The practice of nuclear medicine in the world has evolved over the past 70 years in terms of technology, radioisotopes, education and training, clinical procedures and utilization. Techniques using radioisotopes in nuclear medicine have proven their efficacy in the primary diagnosis and staging of different malignancies with high sensitivity and specificity, thereby detecting pathology far before it is evident, or detectable on conventional medical imaging. The aim of this public lecture is to reflect on the most recent developments in the specialty of nuclear medicine in Namibia and to envision future directions. These issues will be discussed in terms of dimensions of practice, growth over the years, as well as the education and training needs of professionals in the field of nuclear medicine in Namibia.

Modern Advances in Diagnostic Imaging

Abstract
Today, most hospitals are equipped with digital imaging modalities such as digital radiography, fluoroscopy, mammography, computed tomography scanners, digital angiography units, and magnetic resonance imagers. There have been many improvements to imaging technology in recent years. Modern scanners can, within a few seconds, acquire images and construct sections in coronal, sagittal or a large variety of oblique planes, using large volumes of data from the axial sections. Computer programmes even allow tortuous structures, such as arteries and veins to be ‘unravelled’ and shown throughout their length in relation to their surroundings. Minimal invasive surgeries and treatment are made possible by new imaging technologies. While good clinical medicine must come first, we must not forget that most of the latest technological advances aim to extend our diagnostic range and to replace erstwhile invasive procedures with simple, reliable and cost-effective screening methods. It will therefore be short-sighted to ignore the advanced uses and applications offered by modern technologies, because of the significant costs associated with the acquisition of such cutting-edge and life-saving technologies.
