Nuclear Medicine

Nuclear Medicine is the division of imaging that uses radioactive isotopes and radioactive drugs to evaluate disease processes. Studies range from nuclear cardiac scans to bone scans, lung scans, thyroid scans and infection scans.
A small amount of radioactive material is injected into a vein and imaging of the whole body or part of the body is acquired either immediately or at some delayed time point.
