Don’t let the term Nuclear Medicine be a concern. Using very small amounts of radioactive materials helps us make a big difference in understanding a range of conditions and creating the best treatment for you.
Zeroing in on disease
These radioactive substances, called radiopharmaceuticals, are attracted to specific organs, bones, or tissues. By using special imaging technology, doctors can see an image of the area in question. These images help to diagnose diseases of the heart, bones, thyroid, and other internal organs, without surgery.
Early detection is key
At Northern Light Health, we know early detection is key to the treatment of disease and other health conditions. Our nuclear medicine procedures identify abnormalities early in the course of a disease, and often long before some medical problems are evident, providing you with treatment as early on as possible.
The latest in technology
Northern Light Health uses Symbia, a state-of-the-art imaging system from Siemens, that features enhanced processing protocols to enhance the clarity of the nuclear medicine images.
Northern Light Nuclear Medicine is accredited by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC) and has highly-trained, board-certified nuclear medicine technologists who assist your provider with the nuclear medicine techniques.
