Radiosynoviorthesis is an option offered by Nuclear Medicine for the local treatment of synovial inflammation (synovitis), through the intra-articular administration of radiotracer.
Its objective is to reduce and control joint inflammation and its manifestations (pain, repeated joint effusion), without acting directly against the cause of the disease, as well as reducing the use of anti-inflammatories.
A large part of the joints can be treated using this technique, especially those that are beyond the control of the patient’s usual medication.

While waiting for the reabsorption of the contrast, the patient can wait in one of our rooms or go for a walk around the center.
