Nuclear Medicine

Nuclear medicine is a medical speciality in which disease is diagnosed and treated by the application of radioactive substances. Nuclear medicine, in a sense, is "radiology done inside out" or "endoradiology" because it records radiation emitting from within the body rather than radiation that is generated by external sources like X-rays. Nuclear medicine is also known as physiological imaging modality; because it is differ from radiology (nuclear medicine is not emphasis on imaging anatomy).Single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) and positron emission tomography (PET) scans are the two most common imaging modalities in nuclear medicine.

In nuclear medicine procedure, patient will inhale, swallow, or being injected with a radiopharmaceutical (radioactive material) after taking it patient will lie and external detectors (gamma cameras) capture and form an images from the radiation emitted by that radiopharmaceuticals.
