Radiology performs imaging studies of brain, chest, genitourinary, gastrointestinal, vascular and musculoskeletal systems, and provides interpretations of those studies. The results of imaging tests help your doctors make accurate and timely diagnoses. This narrow focus and the close working relationship between radiologists and clinical doctors, means you are in the best hands for finding an exact diagnosis, what leads to more effective treatment and better outcomes. Radiology also provides minimal invasive image-guided treatment options. The goal of radiology is to enhance the quality of patient lives through cutting edge research in diagnostic imaging in MR, CT, x-rays, ultrasound and interventional radiology by early detection and treatment of pathological conditions.

Nuclear medicine

Nuclear medicine is a type of medical imaging that uses minor amounts of radioactive materials called radiotracers, which are usually injected into the bloodstream, inhaled or swallowed, to diagnose and determine the severity of a disease within the body. It is also used to treat a variety of diseases. Nuclear medicine procedures are usually painless; they provide unique information that may not be obtained using other imaging procedures, trace body processes and diagnose abnormalities in its earliest stages without having to perform invasive surgery or more complex diagnostic testing.

After the exam the small amount of radiotracer in your body will lose its radioactivity over time through natural decay. Also it will pass out of your body through urine or stool during the first few hours or days following the test. It is necessary to drink plenty of water to help flush the radioactive material out of the body.
