A Nuclear Medicine physician is knowledgeable about tracer kinetics, the biologic effects of radiation exposure, the fundamentals of the physical sciences and the principles and operation of radiation detection and imaging systems. In nuclear medicine diagnosing techniques, very small amounts of radioactive materials are introduced into the body. Because they are attracted to specific organs, bones or tissues, the emissions they produce can provide crucial information about a particular type of cancer or disease. Information gathered during a nuclear medicine technique is more comprehensive than other imaging procedures because it describes organ function, not just structure. The result is that many diseases and cancers can be diagnosed much earlier.
CEA has provided Nuclear Medicine Medical Equipment appraisals since 1990. For more information, please contact us.
