Nuclear Medicine

Nuclear Medicine

Nuclear medicine is offered at both hospitals. For a nuclear medicine exam, a radioactive liquid is injected into the patient's vein. The nuclear medicine camera measures the radioactivity from the patient's body to evaluate the function of specific organs. These tests are used frequently to look at the heart function, the liver, gall bladder and bones. The radioactivity only lasts for a few hours and does not harm the patient.
