Nuclear Medicine

A Nuclear Medicine examination involves the administration of a radioactive tracer called a Radiopharmaceutical. Radiopharmaceuticals are designed to demonstrate the function of a particular organ without affecting the way the target organ functions. Most Radiopharmaceuticals are injected into a vein, however in some cases they may be ingested or inhaled. The camera used to acquire the images is called a Gamma camera, which detects the distribution of the radiopharmaceutical within the body.
