What is Nuclear Medicine?

Nuclear Medicine involves the intravenous injection or oral administration of a small amount of radioactive material.

This material travels to various organs in the body depending on its chemical composition. The camera then creates an image of the organ in question. AMI employs dual-detector nuclear medicine cameras. These cameras, the only outpatient cameras of their kind in the area, allow both sides of the body to be scanned simultaneously. This can reduce the time the patient has to be on the table by up to 50%, translating into greater patient comfort and more accurate scans.
