Nuclear Medicine Technician

Nuclear Medicine Technician

Course Overview

Nuclear medicine Technicianis a highly specialized health care professional who looks at how the body functions in order to help in diagnosis and treatment of a range of conditions and diseases. Nuclear medicine includes imaging, patient care, chemistry, physics, computer technology and medicine. Nuclear medicine technicians prepare and administer small amounts of radioactive substances called radiopharmaceuticals as well as other medications to patients for diagnosis and treatment.Radiopharmaceuticals are made up of unstable atoms of radionuclides that emit radiation spontaneously. Nuclear medicine technician uses specialized camera system to detect the radiopharmaceuticals which then create a precise picture of the part of the body being imaged. The nuclear medicine technician monitors the characteristics and functions of tissues or organs in which the radiopharmaceuticals localize. Abnormal areas show higher or lower concentrations of radioactivity than normal. Physicians use these images to diagnose molecular, metabolic, physiological, anatomical and pathological conditions.
