Nuclear Medicine

Nuclear Medicine

Nuclear Medicine is a type of imaging procedure that allows doctors to study molecular activity in the body, help diagnose disease early, determine its severity and judge the patient’s response to treatment. Nuclear Medicine uses small amounts of radioactive materials, called radiopharmaceuticals, radionuclides or radiotracers. When detected by special cameras (Gamma Cameras), these radiopharmaceuticals show both structure and function of the organ or tissue. Nuclear Medicine also offers therapeutic procedures to treat cancer and other conditions.

At Lancaster General Health, Nuclear Medicine studies are performed by technologists certified by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) or the National Nuclear Medicine Certification Board (NMTCB).
