Nuclear Medicine - What is it?Nuclear Medicine involves the use of small amounts of radioactive materials (often called "tracers") to help diagnose and treat a variety of diseases.  Nuclear Medicine helps to determine the cause of the medical problem based on the function of a tissue, organ or system.  Nuclear Medicine tests are safe and painless.  In a Nuclear Medicine test the radioactive material is introduced into the body by injection, ingestion or inhalation.
