Nuclear medicine involves the use of small amounts of radioactive materials (or tracers) to help diagnose and treat a variety of diseases. Nuclear medicine determines the cause of the medical problem based on the function of the organ, tissue or bone. This is how nuclear medicine differs from an X-ray, ultrasound or any other diagnostic test that determines the presence of disease based on structural appearance.
Call us to schedule an appointment at our nuclear medicine and molecular imaging location. Our PET/CT, Cardiac PET, and nuclear imaging is available from Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m. - 5 p.m. Same-day appointments are also available.
