Nuclear Medicine

Using a special camera, nuclear medicine exams take pictures of tissues and organs in the body.

Clients swallow, inhale, or are given a needle with a radiotracer before their exam. Radiotracers go to a specific body part so the camera can take pictures.

Radiotracers are also given to treat diseases like thyroid disease.
