Nuclear Medicine

If you suffer from certain gastrointestinal, endocrine or neurological disorders or have heart disease or cancer, your healthcare provider may order nuclear medicine tests. Nuclear medicine testing involves the use of small amounts of radioactive substances injected into the body to help diagnose or classify the stage of your condition.

In addition, nuclear medicine scans obtain information (such as how your organs function) that cannot be found using other imaging types.

How Are Results Provided?
