Outpatient Services

Nuclear Medicine examinations allow functional imaging of an organ through an intravenous injection, inhalation or ingestion of a radioactive tracer. The distribution of this tracer is captured by a SPECT/CT scanner. The SPECT/CT scanner creates a 3D anatomical image on which a 3 D functional or metabolic image is superimposed upon.

Common procedures in nuclear medicine are Bone Scans, Lung ventilations, and Perfusions.

A PET/CT scanner is also available at the Nuclear Medicine Department in Blackrock Clinic.
