Nuclear Medicine is the branch of medical imaging that uses special radiopharmaceuticals to enable doctors to diagnose various conditions, and sometimes treat disease.
Radiopharmaceuticals are substances that are attracted to specific parts of the body, and highlight the way that certain organs function, rather than what they look or are shaped like.
All Dr Jones & Partners Nuclear Medicine scanners have technology called SPECT/CT that combine a state of the art NM camera with the ability to perform low dose CT. This allows fusion of structural and functional information in the one study and has greatly increased the diagnostic usefulness of this discipline.
