Cancer & COVID

​The Nuclear Medicine Department uses different types of nuclear medicine exams to assess how well your organs are working. During a nuclear medicine exam, a radioactive material is placed into your body. When this material reaches the right area, a technologist will take pictures using a special machine called a gamma camera.

What is a MUGA Scan?
