Nuclear Medicine

Diagnostic imaging machine used in nuclear medicine

Nuclear medicine imaging provides doctors with information that would otherwise be unavailable, expensive to diagnose, or possibly require surgery. It uses small doses of radioactive material to diagnose and treat diseases detected by technologically advanced cameras and computers that provide very clear pictures of the area under inspection.

Benefits of using nuclear medicine

This type of imaging identifies abnormalities very early in the progress of a disease. Physicians use nuclear imaging to identify the arrangement and function of an organ, tissue or bone in the body.
