Nuclear Medicine uses radioactive material to create diagnostic images that help doctors visualize the function of organs and detect diseases in the body. The radioactive material is administered orally or intravenously and causes no unwanted side effects. Body parts examined with nuclear medicine include the thyroid, heart, gallbladder, liver, bones and stomach.
The Nuclear Medicine Department is located on the 3rd floor of the WHS Washington Hospital. To schedule or cancel a Nuclear Medicine exam, call (724) 223-3110.
