Nuclear medicine imaging is one of our specialty services here at Medical Diagnostic Scans, which involves the application of radioactive substances, in order to facilitate the diagnosis and treatment of disease. Nuclear medicine records radiation emitting from within the body, as opposed to radiation that is composed by external sources, such as X-rays. Additionally, nuclear medicine images differentiates from radiology, as the focus is not on the imaging of anatomy, but more so the function. Dr. N. Henry Pevsner and his team are board certified in radiology, and are prepared and equipped to perform nuclear imaging tests, along with many more. Please call us today to schedule an appointment to begin your path to healing, and a healthier life.
Each of the tests we administer here at Medical Diagnostic Scans is relatively painless, with the exception of tiny needles, which are injected into the vein. It is rare that an allergic reaction will take place following an injection; however, Dr. Pevsner and his staff are prepared for anything that could possibly occur. During a stress test, we have experienced patients who may have some chest pain, which actually confirms that they are taking the correct test because our team can detect a blockage in the coronary artery with nuclear medicine imaging. The tests we perform are intended to prevent a major medical emergency from occurring, and providing your physician with more insight into the best treatment for you.
