what is a nuclear medicine scan?
Nuclear medicine scans use a gamma camera to detect the low-dose radioactive substance that is either intravenously injected or orally taken by a patient. The scans show the heart in detail, evaluating its functions to ensure the heart and its intricate parts are working properly. The special camera searches for the gamma rays within the radioactive substance, also called a radiotracer, to illuminate normal function and show artery blockages. To learn more about nuclear medicine scans and what these tests can reveal about your health, set up an appointment at Bridgewater Primary Care & Cardiology in West Bridgewater, MA today.
what to expect from a Nuclear Medicine Scan
Nuclear medicine has been part of diagnostic testing for more than 60 years. Although patients are subjected to a low-dose radioactive substance, the benefits of nuclear medicine scans outweigh the risks, such as:
- Provides valuable information about organ function and body composition to diagnose and treat different conditions
- Supplies more precise details than exploratory surgery
- Detects early stages of disease, allowing for immediate intervention and a better prognosis
Bridgewater Primary Care & Cardiology Reviews
I was pleasantly surprised with my visit. I don't know what I expected but the Doctor was very thorough and asked many questions, which I loved. He did seem concerned and wanted to cover all my concerns. The front desk staff was ok. Overall I had a great experience.
Dr. John has been my doctor for four plus years and he always provides the best care for whatever is it that I need. The visits are extremely accommodating and the in person appointments are always efficient and quick. Very clean and spacious office as well. The staff are always welcoming. Thank you so much for all that you do for me!!
Great provider. Listens to all concerns and orders necessary tests. Always punctual. And has a great bedside manner. Have been their patient for the past five years. Highly recommend.
He explained to my husband and myself what we were facing. Also, his personality and bedside manner was superb. Not worried about this procedure at this time. Just waiting to have it scheduled. Office staff up front were caring and polite. Just be glad when all is done and over.
Dr John has been my Cardiologist for many years. He never acts hurried to move me along. The care I have gotten is exceptional!
