Latest news on former PM Nawaz Sharif Medical conditions in London
LONDON: Latest news have been reported on former PM Nawaz Sharif Medical conditions in London.
Former prime minister and PML-N supreme leader Nawaz Sharif underwent a PET scan which was recommended by doctors in London who are getting close to diagnosing the medical condition behind his declining health.
His personal physician, Dr Adnan Khan, tweeted on Thursday afternoon that Mr Sharif underwent a scan at the London Bridge Hospital under the care of haematology at Guy’s Cancer Centre.
“It’s one of the key investigations to establish [the] cause of severe thrombocytopenia,” Dr Khan said.
Last week, the doctor had said the PET scan will give a clearer picture of the reasons behind Mr Sharif’s low platelet count, and that once this is determined, the ailing politician will undergo a cardiac procedure.
A positron emission tomography (PET) scan is an imaging test that allows doctors to check for diseases through a three-dimensional scan of the body.
The scan uses a special dye containing radioactive tracers which are swallowed, inhaled, or injected into the part of the body being examined.
