Learn to Perform Nuclear Medicine Procedures
Nuclear medicine is a unique branch of radiology as it provides information about the structure and function of nearly every vital organ system in our bodies. Nuclear medicine technologists work directly with patients and physicians in a health care setting. Their responsibilities include:
- Operating scintillation detectors
- Preparing and calculating dosages
- Administering radionuclides which are used for the singular purpose of diagnosing and treating diseases
There is minimal exposure to both the technologist and patient when performing nuclear medicine procedures. Broward College offers both an associate’s degree in Nuclear Medicine Technology and a Nuclear Medicine Specialist technical certificate.
