About the Program

The Profession

The nuclear medicine technologist is a trained professional in radioactive pharmaceuticals, providing diagnostic, therapeutic, and investigative applications in the field of medicine. By employing small quantities of radioactive materials, these technologists help visualize and define tumors, malfunctioning organs and the physiology of cardiac, bone, liver, and other organic functions. Computed Tomography (CT) knowledge will be employed in the Nuclear Medicine Department with hybrid scanners or in the CT area for further analysis.
