Nuclear Medicine


Nuclear medicine allows doctors to assess tissue function, metabolism and blood flow. An imaging agent is injected into the patient. Different agents are used to examine specific organs. Once injected, a gamma camera records the radioactivity emitted by the organ and surrounding tissue. Tracking these waves allows your doctors to make an accurate assessment of organ or tissue function.

Nuclear Medicine is available at Maury Regional Medical Center and Marshall Medical Center.
