Nuclear Medicine is another type imaging technique that uses advanced imaging technology to perform the exam. Specialized medicines are injected into the body and go to specific organs. Normal target organs are the heart, the bone and the liver. Images can then be obtained of these organs for visual evaluation and/or the organ function can also be measured by this method of imaging.
A special preparation may be required prior to this procedure if anesthesia is received prior to the exam.
Your physician must order and schedule this procedure with the Diagnostic Imaging Department.
