Nuclear medicine imaging procedures are noninvasive and, with the exception of intravenous injections, are usually painless medical tests that help physicians diagnose and evaluate medical conditions. These imaging scans use radioactive materials called radiopharmaceuticals. Nuclear imaging is a technique for producing images of various body parts using small amounts of radioactive tracers. After administration of the tracer, images of the body part are obtained with a gamma camera, which helps physicians in diagnosing conditions.
Depending on the type of nuclear medicine ,the radiotracer is either injected into the body, swallowed or inhaled as a gas and eventually accumulates in the organ of the body being examined. Radioactive emissions from the radiotracer are detected by a special camera or imaging device that produces pictures and provides molecular information.
Innovations are new idea, device or process. Innovations are the application of better solutions that meet new requirements, inarticulated needs or existing market needs. It is proficient through more effective products, processes, services, technologies, or new ideas that are readily available to markets, governments and society. Innovations are something original and novel, as a significant, new that breaks into the market or society.
