Nuclear Medicine

Nuclear medicine is used to help diagnose a wide variety of diseases and disorders using a gamma camera, which takes pictures and measures how parts of the body are functioning. Computers are used to process the information and produce images of the body.

We offer a variety of nuclear medicine services ranging from cardiac imaging to bone scans.

What to expect

In nuclear medicine, the patient is given a radioactive compound which travels throughout the body to the specific organ being studied. The radiation dose is usually less than a routine chest X-ray.
