Nuclear Medicine Exams

Nov 1, 2018

Welcome to Stelerad, your trusted provider of advanced medical imaging services. We offer a wide range of nuclear medicine exams using cutting-edge PET/CT technology, allowing us to provide accurate diagnoses and personalized treatment plans. Our team of highly skilled professionals is dedicated to delivering exceptional patient care and ensuring accurate results.

What is Nuclear Medicine?

Nuclear medicine is a specialized branch of imaging that uses small amounts of radioactive substances called radiopharmaceuticals or tracers to diagnose and treat various medical conditions. These tracers are administered to patients either orally, through injection, or inhalation, and they emit gamma rays that are detected by special cameras to create images of the body's organs and tissues.

Advanced PET/CT Technology

At Stelerad, we utilize state-of-the-art PET/CT scanners for nuclear medicine exams. PET/CT combines the functional information from Positron Emission Tomography (PET) with the anatomical data from Computed Tomography (CT) to provide high-resolution, detailed images. This hybrid technology allows us to precisely locate and quantify functional abnormalities, enabling accurate diagnosis and treatment planning.

Comprehensive Range of Nuclear Medicine Exams

We offer a comprehensive range of nuclear medicine exams to address a variety of medical conditions. Our highly trained radiologists and nuclear medicine technologists work together to perform these exams efficiently and provide accurate interpretations. Some of the nuclear medicine exams we offer include:

  • PET/CT Scan: This exam provides detailed images that can help detect and monitor the progression of cancer, cardiovascular conditions, neurological disorders, and more.
  • Bone Scan: A bone scan is used to evaluate various bone conditions, such as fractures, infections, and tumors.
  • Thyroid Uptake and Scan: This exam assesses the structure and function of the thyroid gland and detects any abnormalities.
  • Renal Scan: A renal scan evaluates the structure and function of the kidneys, helping diagnose conditions such as kidney stones, infections, and tumors.
  • Lung Perfusion and Ventilation Scan: This exam assesses the blood flow and air distribution in the lungs, aiding in the diagnosis of pulmonary embolism, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and other respiratory conditions.
  • Gastrointestinal (GI) Bleed Scan: This scan helps detect the source of gastrointestinal bleeding and identify potential areas of concern.
