Nuclear Medicine

A targeted approach to finding answers.

The Nuclear Medicine Department provides a wide range of advanced procedures to help detect, evaluate, and diagnose diseases and obstructions of the organs. Our department is approved by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC) Nuclear/PET, which assesses high-quality cardiology and nuclear medicine laboratories.

Nuclear stress tests involve injections of radioisotopes into the veins, which are then localized in different areas of the body. Each test provides an intensely precise picture of the area, allowing your physician to evaluate and accurately diagnose your symptoms. Tests are safe, simple, painless, and there are virtually no side effects.
