A wide spectrum of general nuclear medicine studies are available to outpatients at Princeton Medical Center, which has achieved the prestigious three-year accreditation from the American College of Radiology for all three modalities of imaging: general nuclear medicine (planar imaging); SPECT (single photon emission computed tomography); and Nuclear Cardiology Imaging.
Nuclear medicine studies are provided by licensed technologists and supervised by nuclear medicine physicians and radiologists. PMC is equipped with state-of-the-art technology Spect CT (pictured right), gamma cameras and PET CT (16-slice wide bore) and the latest computer technologies for acquiring and processing scans.
Spect CT scanners are used to perform a full range of exams, including:
- Thyroid scans
- Bone scans
- Liver scans
- Gastric emptying scans
- Lung scans
- Brain scans
