Nuclear Medicine

A special kind of imaging, nuclear medicine creates images of the body and its functions by capturing the energy of a safe radioactive substance as it flows through the body. It’s used to detect tumors and infection by bringing to light a number of bodily processes from kidney function to blood flow through the heart and lungs. Nuclear medicine can also be used to find blockages in the gallbladder and bleeding into the bowel.
