Find a Nuclear Medicine Physician

Doctors who specialize in nuclear medicine are called nuclear medicine radiologists, nuclear radiologists, or nuclear medicine specialists. Nuclear medicine is a particular form of radiology that uses a tiny amount of radioactive materials, called nuclear tracers, to examine organ functions and structure using a specialized camera to scan the tracer through the patient’s body. Tests performed using this method include renal, thyroid, bone, gallium, heart, brain, and breast scans.
