Nuclear medicine imaging uses small amounts of radioactive material that is typically injected into the bloodstream, inhaled, or swallowed. The material travels through the body and gives off energy in the form of gamma rays. A special camera detects these rays, making it possible for a computer to create images of the inside of your body.
