What is Nuclear Medicine?

Nuclear medicine is an imaging modality that is able to take images of how your body functions in a safe and painless away. Its procedures have been used clinically for 50 years and allows determination of medical information that would otherwise be unavailable or more difficult to achieve.

Nuclear medicine uses small amounts of radioactive material to diagnose and determine the severity of a variety of diseases, including many types of cancers, bone pathologies, heart disease, gastrointestinal, endocrine and many more abnormalities within the body. This radioactive material is generally injected into the bloodstream and its distribution is detected by a special Nuclear Medicine gamma camera. 

Radiography and Nuclear medicine are similar but also very different. In nuclear medicine, radioisotopes are introduced into the body internally, where as in radiography the X-rays penetrate from outside of the body.
