ABOUT NUCLEAR MEDICINE
Nuclear Medicine is closely related to Radiology because this is a branch of medical imagery that makes multiple medical diagnoses with the use of minute amounts of radioactive material. This branch of medical imagery makes use of scanning instead of intravenous injections that yields painful extraction and sampling from patients. Nuclear Medicine makes use of radioactive materials called radiopharmaceuticals or radiotracers.
This is a more efficient method of diagnosing certain medical conditions and a more accurate form of identifying specific problems and the severity of these health problems that need immediate medical attention. Nuclear Medicine not only determines the severity of these diseases but may also provide treatment. Nuclear Medicine can identify medical conditions like cancers, heart diseases, gastrointestinal, endocrine, neurological disorders and many other irregularities in the human body.
