Nuclear Medicine

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

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