What is Radiology?
Radiological procedures are used for looking at the internal structures of the body, whether bone or soft tissue. Usually these examinations are carried out to:
  • diagnose disease states, such as cancer or heart disease
  • show the extent of injury to body structures
  • to aid in interventional procedures, such as angiography.
What is Scintigraphy?
Scintigraphy, or nuclear medicine, uses radioactive tracers to assess the function of organs at a molecular level.  Radiation doses are comparable to x-ray examinations, there are no reactions to the tracers and the tests are therefore exceptionally safe and well tolerated.
