Nuclear Medicine

Nuclear Medicine is a branch of Diagnostic Imaging that uses a small amount of radioactive material, called radiopharmaceuticals, to help diagnose functional issues in the body.  Depending on the type of exam the radiopharmaceuticals can be injected into a vein, ingested, or inhaled.  Nuclear Medicine exams are non-invasive and there are no side effects from the tracers. 


Nuclear Medicine exams can help diagnose heart disease, bone cancer, and other abnormalities in the skeletal, endocrine, gastrointestinal, respiratory, and other systems.  The length of time for Nuclear Medicine procedures varies greatly, depending on the type of exam and how the area of concern is functioning.
