A Nuclear Medicine exam is a procedure where a small amount of radioactive isotope is injected intravenously (IV) into the patient. The patient will lie down on his/her back in a special machine that uses a gamma camera to detect the radiation uptake in the tissues and organs of interest. Our technologist is registered in radiology by the ARRT, as well as the Nuclear Medicine Technology Certification Board. Nuclear Medicine exams may be lengthy, so be sure to ask your provider who orders the test the approximate time you will be in our Imaging Center for the exam.
