  • Nuclear Medicine

    Our Nuclear medicine services include SPECT and PET CT. Nuclear medicine uses small amounts of radioactive substances called tracers, which target and show the organ of interest, in order to diagnose disease and the severity and also treat disease. Nuclear medicine provides unique functional and physiological information that your doctor will use to diagnose problems.
