Nuclear Medicine

The nuclear medicine division of diagnostic imaging provides a full range of clinically focused diagnostic and therapeutic procedures.  In nuclear medicine a small amount of radioactive material is introduced into the body by injection, ingestion or inhalation.   The administered radioactive material then localizes to a particular organ or site through normal physiologic processes. 

Small amounts of energy are released from the localized radioactive material and detected by state of the art SPECT camera’s and hybrid imaging equipment such as PET/CT and SPECT/CT cameras which document the structure or function of the tissue or organ of interest. 

All studies are interpreted by board-certified radiologists.
