Nuclear Medicine

Using small amounts of radioactive material called isotopes, physicians can obtain accurate images to study organs and tissues. Nuclear Medicine scans are extremely safe and carry about the same risk as a common X-ray. Only tiny amounts of short-lived radioactive material are used.

Nuclear Medicine is an important medical tool in the diagnosis of a variety of conditions including:

  • Occult Infections
  • Blood clots in the lungs
  • Bone Tumors
  • Cirrhosis
  • Heart Disease
  • Hepatitis
  • Kidney Function
  • Breast Cancer
  • Gastrointestinal Bleeding
  • Hepatobiliary Disease
  • Strokes
  • Thyroid Conditions
  • Tumors
