Nuclear Medicine : How Does It Work ?

December 26, 2018

Nuclear medicine studies were first performed in the 1950s using special devices called "gamma cameras." Nuclear medicine studies require the oral or intravenous introduction of very low-level radioactive chemicals (called radionuclides, radiopharmaceuticals or radiotracers) into the body. Radiopharmaceuticals are specially formulated to be collected temporarily in the specific part of the body to be studied. The radionuclides are taken up by the organs in the body and then emit faint gamma ray signals which are measured by a gamma camera.
