​Nuclear Medicine Faculty

The Division of Nuclear Medicine covers all aspects of Nuclear imaging including PET CTs, Thyroid treatments, Bone Scans, and others. In Nuclear studies, we use small amounts of radioactive tracer materials to help diagnose and treat a wide range of diseases. Nuclear medicine is a safe, painless, and cost-effective way of gathering information that can be extremely helpful in making a diagnosis, and in some cases nuclear medicine is a treatment technique. Nuclear medicine differs from other diagnostic tests, such as an X-ray, ultrasound or any other imaging exam, in that those exams determine the presence of disease based on structural appearance, rather than functional information.The breadth of experience among the faculty is reflected in the wide range of academic pursuits enjoyed by the division. The faculty are actively involved in providing top-notch, coordinated, multidisciplinary approach to the evaluation and treatment of patients.
