Nuclear Medicine (also called metabolic imaging)


Through nuclear imaging, diagnostic imaging staff can see your body at work. This is especially helpful when looking at blood clots, cancer and the functioning of the organs in your body. Very small amounts of a radioactive tracer are injected into your body in order to produce these images. Don't let the name scare you. These tracers leave the body very quickly and have no side effects.
