Nuclear Medicine

Our Nuclear Medicine camera (called The Millennium) has revolutionized how we deliver healthcare to our patients. Despite the name, Nuclear Medicine tests are very safe and have been used longer than CT, MRI, and ultrasounds.

The Millennium's advanced technology provides the imaging department with the ability to provide a wide range of nuclear diagnostic studies. This includes imaging studies such as:

Full body bone scans
Hepatobiliary studies (Gallbladder function)
Gated Radionuclide Ventriculography - assessing the output of the ventricles of the heart
Stress/Rest Cardiac studies - assessing coronary artery disease

What Do You Have To Do To Prepare For A Nuclear Medicine Scan?

It's as easy as not taking anything by mouth for a minimum of 6 hours beforehand.

Nuclear Medicine scans make pictures based on your body's chemistry (like metabolism) rather than on physical shapes and forms (like an X-Ray or MRI) so most scans use an intravenous injection of a mildly radioactive solution.

Scheduled For A Nuclear Medicine Study?

We are here to help you every step of the way. You will receive detailed instructions and, in some cases, will receive a phone call from a member of our radiology department the day before your scan. Our team member will go over the instructions with you, ask questions about any medications you're using, and any other health related issues you may have before your scheduled scan.
