Nuclear Medicine is a form of imaging that uses a very small dose of radioactive material, called an isotope or radiopharmaceutical, to diagnose and sometimes treat disease. Radiopharmaceuticals or isotopes are materials that are attracted to specific organs, bones or tissues. They are administered to the patient by IV injection, capsule, special tubing or inhalation. A nuclear medicine test is painless, and the exposure to radiation is about the same as that of a diagnostic X-ray.
Nuclear medicine can be used for the early detection of a wide variety of diseases.
A full of range of nuclear scans is offered.
