A highly specialized area of radiology, nuclear medicine involves using small amounts of radioactive materials (tracers) to examine the structure and function of bodily organs. Unlike other diagnostic imaging tests such as X-rays and ultrasounds—which allow physicians to visualize and diagnose conditions based on the appearance of organs and tissues—nuclear medicine affords physicians essential information about organ function and blood circulation.
Often used to diagnose conditions such a thyroid cancer in early stages, nuclear medicine involves multiple disciplines, including physics, chemistry, technology, and mathematics. As such, this branch of radiology is both broad and complex, presenting a challenge for many health care providers because it is expensive to have a team of radiologists with the requisite knowledge on site. Real Radiology makes subspecialized radiology interpretations readily accessible to our health care partners via an intuitive and stable web-based RIS/PACS system.
