Bachelor of Science in Radiologic Sciences with a Major in Nuclear Medicine Technology
Nuclear Medicine Technologists work closely with the imaging physician to diagnose and treat disease. Nuclear medicine technology combines chemistry, physics, mathematics, computer technology, and medicine in diagnostic imaging using small amounts of radioactivity.
Though there are many diagnostic techniques currently available, nuclear medicine uniquely provides information about both the structure and function of virtually every major organ system within the body. It is this ability to characterize which separates nuclear medicine from other imaging modalities, such as x-ray. Nuclear Medicine procedures are safe; they involve little or no patient discomfort and do not require the use of anesthesia.
