Physicians use nuclear medicine to detect, review, and treat different diseases. Nuclear medicine tests determine molecular task. The radiotracer accumulates in a different way in various type of tissue. This can assist your doctor identify whether cancer might be present. It also aids your physician to identify whether a biopsy or added follow-up is required.
