Nuclear medicine

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.
