The programs of the Division of Nuclear Medicine focus on clinical service, research and education involving the medical uses of radiopharmaceuticals. A dedicated and experienced faculty of approximately 30 physicians and scientists leads these programs.
In the Nuclear Medicine Clinics, patients benefit from state-of-the-art procedures that include the latest instruments, computers and radiotracers for diagnosis and treatment of diseases. The clinical program is broadly based, but there are major emphases on cancer, disorders of the central nervous system and heart disease.
Comprehensive facilities of the Adult Nuclear Medicine Clinic (10,000 square feet) and the Pediatric Nuclear Medicine Clinic (2,000 square feet) include:
- 6 SPECT tomographs
- 3 hybrid SPEC/CT tomographs and
- 1 hybrid PET/CT scanner devoted to patient care
Imaging is closely integrated into the Picture Archiving and Communications System of the Department of Radiology.
