Nuclear medicine

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)


Nuclear Medicine is concerned with providing diagnostic information about
patients following the administration of a radioactive product. The patient is
imaged using a Gamma Camera. Images are produced of the distribution of
the radioactive substance within different organs and systems. This can be present and assess its extent or severity.
A multidisciplinary health care team, comprising of medical staff, hospital
physicists, radiopharmacists, medical technologists, radiography practitioners,
nurses and clerical support staff, delivers the nuclear medicine service.
Nuclear medicine departments can be autonomous or part of a diagnostic
imaging department.
