About nuclear medicine at ESNEFT
We use small amounts of nuclear medicine in your body that our specialist cameras can find. This gives your doctor information on how your body works.
This can help our doctors provide you with an early diagnosis and, in some cases, treat disease.
Before your appointment
Please contact us if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or work with radioactive material.
There is information about what to expect during a nuclear medicine appointment on the British nuclear medicine society website.
