Molecular Imaging

Main Page Content

​​​Nuclear medicine and Molecular Imaging use safe, painless, and cost-effective techniques to image the body and treat disease. Our imaging is unique as it provides doctors with information about structure and function. We may provide medical information that would otherwise be unavailable, require surgery, or necessitate more expensive diagnostic tests. Our imaging procedures often identify abnormalities very early in the progress of a disease and long before any medical problems are apparent with other diagnostic tests.

Very small amounts of radioactive materials (radiopharmaceuticals) are used to diagnose and treat disease. In imaging, the radiopharmaceuticals are detected by SPECT/CT or PET/CT cameras that work with computers to provide very precise pictures. In treatment, the radiopharmaceuticals go directly to the organ being treated.

We offer procedures that are essential in many medical specialties, from pediatrics to cardiology to psychiatry. New and innovative treatments that target and pinpoint molecular levels within the body are revolutionizing our understanding of and approach to a range of diseases and conditions.
