The Nuclear Medicine Department uses low doses of radioactive tracers to diagnose and treat disease in many areas in the body. Highly qualified board certified Nuclear Medicine Technologists diagnostically depict the anatomical and gross physiology of different organs, through advanced imaging. Common Nuclear Medicine procedures include the thyroid, gastrointestinal, skeletal, pulmonary, cardiovascular, lymphatic, urinary, therapeutic, and the central nervous system.
The Nuclear Medicine department has state-of-the-art equipment, which includes two Siemens Dual Head E-Cameras and the new Siemens Symbia Camera. Superior performance images are obtained in planar, whole body and SPECT views. This precise technology allows radiologists to diagnose different diseases anywhere in the body, pinpointing the exact location, size, nature, and staging of different diseases.
