Nuclear Medicine combines chemistry, physics, mathematics, computer technology, and medicine through the use of radioactivity to diagnose and treat disease. Though there are many diagnostic techniques currently available, Nuclear Medicine uniquely provides information about both the structure and function of virtually every major organ system within the body.
The Nuclear Medicine Technologist is a highly specialized healthcare professional who works closely with the nuclear medicine physician.
