Highland Beach Nuclear Medicine Imaging is a medical procedure that deals with the application of radioactive materials when diagnosing and treating various conditions or diseases. To help you understand what nuclear medicine is, we can identify it as "radiology done inside out" or endoradiology. It keeps a record of the amount of radiation accumulating within the body, and not the radiation the body is exposed to from external variables like an x-ray. This type of imaging also differs from radiology because the focus is on the function, not the anatomy. This is called physiological imaging modality. The two most popular imaging nuclear medicine modalities are SPECT or PET scans.
For Highland Beach Nuclear Medicine Imaging you can rely on as accurate and dependable, have Dr. N. Henry Pevsner and his team administer it. During the procedure, a small needle is injected into the vein, but it is completely painless. Rarely does a patient have an allergic reaction. In fact, Dr. Pevsner has never seen one in any of his patients. There have been cases of patients experiencing chest pain during a stress test. This is not a bad thing, this just means the test is being done correctly, and we can identify heart artery blockages with our imaging test. If we find some blockages in the heart coronary arteries that need repairing, we can do so with a cardiac catheterization and balloon dilation, or we place a stent inside it.
