Nuclear imaging is used to study organ and tissue function. A tiny amount of radioactive substance is used during the procedure. The substance, called a radionuclide, is absorbed by body tissue.
By measuring the behavior of the radionuclide in the body during a nuclear scan, the radiologist can assess and diagnose various conditions, such as tumors, infections, hematomas, organ enlargement, or cysts. Nuclear imaging can also be used to assess organ function and blood circulation.
By participating in this quiz, or screening or health assessment, I recognize and accept all risks associated with it. I understand that the program will only screen for certain risk factors and does not constitute a complete physical exam. For the diagnosis of a medical problem, I must see a physician for a complete medical exam. I release Deborah Heart and Lung Center and any other organization(s) involved in this screening, and their employees and agents, from all liabilities, medical claims or expenses which may arise from my participation. Thank you for investing in your health by participating today.
