Nuclear medicine uses small amounts of radioactive substances that are attracted to specific organs, bones, or tissues. These substances emit gamma rays that can be detected by a gamma camera. The cameras work in conjunction with computers to form images that provide information about the area of body being imaged.
The amount of radiation from a nuclear medicine procedure is comparable to that received during a diagnostic x-ray.
Patients with an appointment at Hôpital Montfort will receive an automated confirmation call up to 5 days prior to their appointment.
