Understanding nuclear medicine

Nuclear medicine imaging uses small amounts of radioactive materials called radiopharmaceuticals that are typically injected into a vein. The radiopharmaceutical travels to the area being examined and gives off energy in the form of gamma rays which is detected by a special camera to create images of the inside of your body.
