Nuclear Medicine

 

Nuclear medicine imaging is how a particular part of your body functions at the cellular level. A radiotracer is introduced into your body by our certified technologist, via an injection or orally ingested. It is then absorbed by a specific tissue or organ and is detected by our gamma camera to provide information on organ function and activity. Disease begins at the cellular level. Nuclear imaging has the potential to identify disease in an earlier and more treatable stage, often before other tests are able to reveal abnormalities.
