nuclear imaging and medicine

Nuclear medicine uses radioactive isotopes to picture or photograph organs of the body to safely and effectively determine if an organ is functioning properly. Nuclear imaging is often used to view the structure of the main organs and tissues such as:

  • Brain
  • Heart
  • Kidneys
  • Liver
  • Lungs
  • Thyroid

Nuclear medicine images can assist physicians in analyzing blood flow and diagnosing diseases. Tumors, infection, and other disorders can be detected by evaluating organ and cardiac function.

Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital has a strong commitment to our nuclear medicine program, using three scanners, including a dual-head nuclear camera, to perform 10,000 tests and studies each year. The dual-head camera allows us to perform imaging procedures faster and with enhanced accuracy because it is using two cameras instead of one. Only board-certified radiologists and state licensed technologists meet our high standard for providing quality care.
