Nuclear Medicine

This refers to a technique that shows how your internal organs are functioning. Nuclear medicine does this by using a "gamma camera" to take pictures of small amounts of radioactive materials that are injected into your blood stream. Although this sounds dangerous, the materials decay rapidly, so they are out of your system in a matter of hours and total radiation dose is small.
