Nuclear Medicine & Molecular Imaging

Nuclear Medicine includes the field of Molecular imaging. It uses in very small amounts of radioactive materials (radio pharmaceuticals) to diagnose and treat disease. In nuclear medicine imaging, the radio pharmaceuticals are detected by special types of cameras that work with computers to provide very precise pictures of the area of the body being imaged. Nuclear medicine can also be used to treat certain types of cancer and other diseases. Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging are unique because an external source of energy such as x-rays, magnetic fields or ultrasound waves is used to produce pictures of bone and soft tissue. In nuclear medicine and molecular imaging procedures, the energy source is introduced into the body, where it gets incorporated in a specific tissue, organ or process and is then detected by an external device to provide information on organ function and cellular activity. These two are playing an increasingly important role in patient care, medical research, and pharmaceutical development.
