Nuclear medicine is the subspecialty of radiology that images bodily
function rather than anatomy. This is done through the use of tiny
amounts of radioactive materials, also known as tracers, each of which
are designed to be attracted to specific organs or types of body tissue.
The images are created by special cameras that can map the distribution
of the tracer in the body part being studied. Aside from diagnosis,
nuclear medicine also includes several treatment procedures.
Nuclear medicine exams are among the safest tests available in
diagnostic imaging. The amount of radiation in a nuclear medicine test
is comparable to that received during a diagnostic x-ray exam. Only
extremely small amounts of tracers are used which lose most of their
radioactivity in hours or days and are quickly eliminated from the body.
