Radiologic Sciences: Nuclear Medicine
Nuclear Medicine is a specialty in which radioactive pharmaceuticals are used to diagnose or treat disease. The technologist administers small amounts of radioactive pharmaceuticals into the patient. The radiation emitted by the body is detected by specialized equipment that converts the radiation measurements to images. These images contain information about the function of the organ or system in question. Abnormalities may be detected very early in the disease process, allowing for earlier treatment regimens.
