One Step Diagnostic provides comprehensive nuclear medicine services, including organ function investigations, PET imaging, cancer studies, radioassay, and thyroid therapies.
Our certified nuclear medicine technologist will administer a small dose of radioactive material during the procedure, typically via intravenous injection. The substance momentarily emits gamma rays from the gland or organ in question. A sensor or gamma camera detects the rays on the patient, and the acquired data can be translated into diagnostic images. The radioactive material injected is in trace amounts and only lingers in the body for a brief period of time.
