Nuclear medicine tests help diagnose a variety of diseases. A very small, safe amount of a medical isotope (radioactive substance) is injected into a vein, swallowed or breathed in. Specials cameras are usually used to see images of your organs.

Sometimes, Nuclear Medicine is used to treat disease.

The length of the test varies depending on what organ is being viewed. Often, multiple scans will be performed. This may require return visits to complete the exam. Details, including any special preparations, will be provided when your appointment is confirmed.

For more information about diagnostic imaging and nuclear medicine, visit the Canadian Association of Radiologists’ website and Canadian Association of Nuclear Medicine. website.
