Nepean Radiology is at the forefront of utilisation of modern developments in Nuclear Medicine, with our state-of-the-art imaging technology installed in our practice. Our Nuclear Medicine machines provide enhanced imaging results whilst maintaining an ultra-low dose.
Nuclear Medicine uses very small amounts of radioactive isotopes, usually attached to a radiopharmaceutical to allow images to be taken of various organs in the body. At Nepean Radiology our technology and innovation delivers increased image quality while reducing the dose required.
At Nepean Radiology our Nuclear Medicine camera provides a broad selection of Nuclear Medicine Imaging protocols. Our technical staff are happy to discuss with you the specific procedure requested by your doctor and any preparation necessary.
Nuclear Medicine is extremely safe because the radioactive isotopes used are quickly eliminated from the body through its natural functions. At Nepean Radiology the radiation dose necessary for a scan is always kept to a minimum whilst still providing quality images.
If you are pregnant or suspect that you may be, please advise our staff before the test is performed, as special precautions may have to be taken.
