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.
Examples of exams performed at our facility include cardiac stress tests
for heart function, bone scans for infection, cancer or inflammation,
and lung scans for COPD and pulmonary embolism (blood clot), as well as
tests for the liver, and gallbladder. The radioactivity only lasts for
a few hours and does not harm the patient.
