What is Nuclear Medicine?
Nuclear Medicine performs diagnostic imaging to look at the function of organs and detect diseases in the body. A radioactive material is injected into the arm or given by mouth so that imaging may be performed. The material will not make you sick and gives off about the same amount of radiation as having a CT scan. A wide variety of organs may be examined such as the thyroid, heart, gallbladder, liver, bones, and stomach, to name a few.
