What We Do
Nuclear medicine is a medical specialty that uses safe and painless techniques to image the body and treat disease. Radioactive materials, often in the form of an injection, can be detected by advanced instrumentation to provide information about the physiology (functioning) and the anatomy of the body. The information gathered helps to establish a diagnosis and aids the physician in the determination of the most effective treatment.
