Some diseases, like cancer, require special treatments. Nuclear Medicine is that branch of medicine that uses radioactive substances to research, diagnose and treat various diseases. The radioactive materials, called radiotracers, when inserted into the bloodstream of the patient, depict the inside of the body through images that are reflected by a special camera. The radiotracers travel inside the area that needs to be examined and produce accurate images by giving off energy in the form of gamma rays. This diagnostic procedure is very effective and helps in finding out about a disease even at its nascent stage that is not possible with other imagine techniques.
