Nuclear Medicine

Nuclear medicine scans produce images from different parts of the body by detecting a radiator that had been injected into a vein, inhaled as a gas or swallowed by mouth. The radiotracer emits energy in the form of gamma rays that is detected using a gamma camera or probe. Radiotracers expose the patient to approximately the same amount of radiation as a routine chest x-ray and have no side effects. Most patients are able to resume normal activities and diet immediately.
