Bc. Jakub Suchánek - Radiology Assistant

At the Department of Nuclear Medicine, I am in charge of patients as well as the gamma cameras. Work with the cameras is more relaxed, but they cannot surprise me like my patients often do with their stories.

Shadow our mentoring team at the Specialized Center of Nuclear Medicine and Endocrinology

Our mentors in the Specialized Center of Nuclear Medicine and Endocrinology of the University Hospital in Motol treat patients from the whole Czech Republic. They focus mainly on the diagnosis and treatment of patients with differentiated carcinoma of the thyroid gland and severe forms of thyroid orbitopathy using the 131 I-MIBG therapy.  In addition, they carry out standard radio isotopic diagnostics. In 2014, more than 4,000 outpatients were treated in our hospital.

Ing. Tereza Kračmerová - Radiology Physicist

I like that my work differs from day to day; it is not a job where you have to deal with the same things over and over again. Every minute something new and unexpected can occur, and you need to be focused all the time. You simply cannot get bored.

Nuclear Medicine and Endocrinology is a perfect choice for those of you, who are interested in medicine as well as in physics or science. Future doctors and engineers focused on healthcare are the right people who should choose this placement.

MUDr. Monika Hartmanová - Ward and Outpatient Department Doctor

In high school I mostly enjoyed chemistry and biology, and I was fascinated by the human body. So I never thought of doing anything else other than medicine. It seemed to me that this profession made sense and was a field in which I can help others.

You will definitely appreciate the sophisticated devices the center possesses. If you visit this specialized center as a shadowing student, you will observe the day-to-day routine of our mentors, which includes work with the most advanced equipment. That is why is important to respect the instructions of your mentoring team. The gamma cameras and other special devices are maintained daily to provide 100% precise results of patients´ examinations. Caution and couriosity need to be one of your key streaks here.
