Nuclear Medicine Technology

Nuclear Medicine is the most advanced - and perhaps most exciting - area of imaging.

Using radioactive substances (radiopharmaceuticals or "tracers") and special cameras, technologists map metabolic changes inside our bodies.

This advanced technology provides detailed images of how internal organs and systems respond to tracers, giving patients and physicians a revolutionary tool in the diagnosis and treatment of disease.
