Nuclear medicine uses small amounts of radioactive material to diagnose, determine the severitiy or treat a variety of diseases. Radiopharmaceuticals are injected, inhaled or swallowed to evaluate the structure or function of an organ, tissue or bone within the body.

 

PET/CT is an advanced nuclear imaging technique that combines positron emission tomography and computed tomography into one machine. Radiopharmaceuticals are injected into the blood stream to evaluate the metabolic processes within the body.
