How is it done?
Very small amounts of radiopharmaceuticals or tracers are used to diagnose and treat the disease. These radiopharmaceuticals are administered to the patient in various ways and then detected by special type of cameras that are used in conjunction with computers to provide very precise images of the area of the body being imaged.
