Nuclear Medicine is an imaging modality that shows the physiologic function of the system being imaged. A variety of radiopharmaceutical agents are used for different types of exams. A small dose is given and biologic activity of different body organs is tracked by a very sensitive camera. Examples include but are not limited to studies of the skeletal system, heart, liver, gallbladder, kidneys and stomach.
Depending on the type of exam your doctor has requested, special preparation may be required and will be discussed with you at the time of scheduling.
Nuclear Medicine exams are performed at our Medical Imaging Center office, 5008
Brittonfield Parkway in East Syracuse. We are accredited in Nuclear Medicine by the American College of Radiology.
