Nuclear Medicine

Nuclear Medicine is a medical specialty that uses radioactive tracers to evaluate the cause of a medical condition based on the function of your bones, organs, and tissue, and to diagnose or treat disease. Using information gathered from Gamma and SPECT/CT scanners, our Radiologists diagnose conditions of blood circulation, infections, organ function, tumors, and forms of cancer.
