Nuclear Medicine is a branch of medicine specializing in the use of radionuclides for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. It uses extremely small amounts of radioactively labeled compounds (most often injected into a vein in the arm) in order to produce clinical images used to assess the function and state of health of many of the body’s internal organs; in some cases similar compounds may be used to treat some forms of cancer.
