Nuclear MedicineIs a specialized area of radiology that uses small amounts of radioactive material to diagnose, evaluate or treat a variety of diseases. Nuclear medicine exams can pinpoint molecular activity, they have the potential to identify disease in its earliest stages. They can also show whether a patient is responding to treatment.
PET/CTPositron Emission Tomography, is a type of nuclear medicine imaging. PET scan may detect the early onset of disease by identifying changes at the cellular level before other imaging tests can. PET uses a small amount of radioactive material that can be detected on the PET scanner.
DEXADual-energy X-ray absorptiometry is a means of measuring bone mineral density using spectral imaging. Two X-ray beams, with different energy levels, are aimed at the patient's bones. When soft tissue absorption is subtracted out, the bone mineral density can be determined from the absorption of each beam by bone.
