Nuclear Medicine

Nuclear medicine, or radionuclide imaging, is a noninvasive test that uses small amounts of radioactive material to diagnose and treat a variety of diseases, including many types of cancers and heart disease.

At Newton Medical Center, we provide several diagnostic exams that incorporate nuclear medicine, including single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), cardiac stress tests, and bone, thyroid and renal scans. It is also used in some of our treatments, such as radioactive iodine therapy.

Preparing for Nuclear Medicine at Newton Medical Center 

  • You may be asked to wear a gown during the exam or you may be allowed to wear your own clothing.

  • Women should always inform their physician or technologist if there is any possibility that they are pregnant or if they are breastfeeding.

  • Based on the type of nuclear medicine scan you are receiving, your doctor will provide more specific instructions.

Nuclear Medicine Results 

Newton Medical Center’s radiologists are experts in supervising and interpreting radiology examinations. They will analyze your nuclear medicine images and send a signed report to your primary care physician or the physician who referred you for the exam.
