Nuclear medicine is a specialized area of radiology that uses very small amounts of radioactive materials (given either orally or intravenously) to examine an organ’s structure and metabolic function. Nuclear medicine imaging is used to: Scan organs for abnormalities, Evaluate the spread of cancer, Locate infection, and Identify blood clots in the lungs. Tennova Healthcare utilizes the Discovery IS PET/CT System, which has the capability to detect abnormal metabolic activity in tissue long before it can be detected by conventional CT or MRI exams. This advanced technology offers reduced scan times for greater patient comfort, and delivers results quickly so doctors can begin treatment as soon as possible.
