What is nuclear medicine?
Nuclear medicine is a branch of medicine that uses small amounts of radioactive isotopes to help diagnose, determine the severity of, or treat a variety of diseases, including certain types of cancers, heart disease, gastrointestinal, endocrine, neurological disorders and other abnormalities within the body. Because diagnostic nuclear medicine procedures are able to help visualize molecular activity within the body, they offer the potential to identify disease in its earliest stage, often before symptoms occur or before abnormalities can be detected with other diagnostic tests, and can even help identify a patient’s response to therapeutic interventions. Larger amounts of radioactive isotopes can also be used for therapy for certain types of diseases.
Nuclear Medicine diagnostic scans offer unique information, including details on both the function and anatomic structure of the body and have high sensitivity & specificity for cardiology and oncology.
Diagnostic nuclear medicine procedures are noninvasive medical tests that have been used for over 50 years. Depending on the type of nuclear medicine exam, the radiotracer is injected, inhaled, or swallowed and accumulates in the organ or area of the body being examined. The isotope then emits radiation from the targeted organ or cell receptor to an external detector, often called a nuclear medicine camera.
