Nuclear Medicine employs the administration of small quantities of radiopharmaceuticals in order to evaluate the structure and function of an organ or system. Nuclear medicine excels in its ability to identify abnormalities very early in the progression of a disease, often before the medical problem may be apparent on other diagnostic tests. This 12-month program prepares radiographers to perform nuclear medicine procedures in hospitals, clinics, and imaging centers.
