Molecular imaging is unlike any other imaging technology. It enables the search for the kind of discovery that provides reproducible evidence of what is seen and often not seen.

The Role of Nuclear Medicine

The field of nuclear medicine is used every day, including right here in Flagstaff, to help diagnose and treat various illnesses and health problems. Nuclear medicine might seem a bit scary to those not familiar with this area of medical care; however, there have been amazing medical advances achieved in this field by working with controlled, low doses of radioactive substances.

At Northern Arizona Radiology, specially trained physicians (radiologists) work with imaging technology such as X-rays and nuclear imaging to get a better look at what’s really going on inside a patient’s body. Unlike X-rays, which are basically images of the body from the outside looking in (X-rays passing through the body from an outside source), nuclear imaging views part of the body from the inside looking out, with imaging equipment outside the body picking up traces of radioactive substances from inside the body.
