Imaging & care
RCIA’s nuclear medicine subspecialists identify diseases in their earliest stages through the use of small amounts of radioactive material, which is either injected, swallowed, or inhaled into the body. This allows specialized equipment to detect the radiation inside the body, producing a digitized image of the body’s tissue and organ function in real time.
Nuclear medicine is commonly used to evaluate the gallbladder, liver, thyroid, lungs, and heart without surgery, and facilitates the early diagnosis of diseases like cancer, often before symptoms appear, and can even assess the effectiveness of ongoing cancer therapy. RCIA nuclear medicine radiologists work hand in hand every day with surgeons, oncologists, family practitioners, and other healthcare professionals to provide rapid, accurate patient care.
