Nuclear Medicine

Nuclear medicine is a specialized field within radiology that uses small amounts of radioactive substances during imaging procedures to help doctors detect abnormalities and diseases at their earliest stages, allowing for the best clinical outcomes for our patients.

The field of nuclear medicine contains important studies for identifying, evaluating, and treating a full spectrum of diseases within the body, including most types of cancers, neurological disorders, thyroid diseases, and gastrointestinal conditions.We provide studies to evaluate kidney function, kidney obstruction, portal hypertension, gastrointestinal bleed localization, lung scans for pulmonary embolism, and tumor diagnosis and staging, as well as seizure focus localization in the brain using PET/CT scans.

Our Services

Our services include the use of DaTscan (Ioflupane) to evaluate Parkinson's disease and other movement disorders, and amyloid brain scans for suspected Alzheimer’s disease. We offer Ra-223 therapy to alleviate bone pain—we were the first center in Connecticut to provide this treatment.
