Palm Beach Shores Nuclear Medicine Scanning is one of many services that we provide our patients with at Medical Diagnostic Scans. A Nuclear Medicine Scan is a method used to prevent medical emergencies. When we conduct the nuclear scan, we use a certain type of camera to take images of radioactivity. It is followed by an injection consisting of a radioactive tracer substance targeted at a specific organ. Board certified doctor, Dr. N. Henry Pevsner and his medical staff use the tracers to find normal or abnormal activity within the certain organs. These include brain function, liver function, heart function, and the blood supply moving to the heart muscle. If your physician needs a detailed analysis of what is causing you pain and discomfort a nuclear scan will provide us with accurate information.
The Palm Beach Shores Nuclear Medicine Scanning does not cause any pain. Injections that involve having to insert a tiny needle into your vein cause pain, but that is it, no other tests do. Our medical staff have never seen a severe allergic reaction that required immediate medical care. When you arrive to our medical center you will be welcomed by our friendly staff. They will answer all of your questions and explain your medical procedures in-depth. Call us today to get more information, and to schedule a consultation.
