Nuclear Medicine

Nuclear medicine testing uses a small amount of radioactive material (given orally or by IV) and a special camera to produce images. These tests can help your physician evaluate organ function, assess bones affected by trauma or disease, or evaluate bodily fluids, such as blood and cerebrospinal fluid. Nuclear medicine is helpful in diagnosing obstructions; abscesses, infection, or inflammation; fractures not visible on X-ray; tumors; postsurgical changes; and many other conditions.
