Nuclear Medicine

Nuclear medicine imaging is used to identify and diagnose many different kinds of diseases, often in their earliest stages, as it provides unique information that cannot be obtained using other imaging methods. The procedure can also help determine whether or not certain organs within the body are functioning normally.

This medical specialty involves the application of small amounts of radioactive materials called radiotracers that are typically injected into the bloodstream, inhaled or swallowed.

As radiotracer travels through the area being examined, it gives off energy in the form of gamma-rays which are detected by a special camera and a computer in order to create images of the inside of your body.

Nuclear medicine procedures are considered safe and helpful in the management of many diseases since the radioactivity given to a patient does not pose any demonstrable health hazards.
