What Is Nuclear Medicine?

Nuclear medicine is a field of medical imaging that uses small amounts of radioactive tracer to diagnose a wide range of diseases.

A Note About Tracers

We use the lowest dose of radioactive tracer to get the highest quality images. Radiation exposure is minimal. We limit exposure by carefully tailoring the dose to each patient. The radiation risk is very low compared to potential benefits.
