LLU Career Profile - Nuclear Medicine from Loma Linda U on Vimeo.

Nuclear medicine is a medical specialty that utilizes the nuclear properties of radioactive and stable nucleotides to make diagnostic evaluations of the anatomic and physiologic conditions of the body.

The skills of the nuclear medicine technologist complement those of the nuclear medicine physician and other allied health professionals.

The student technologist learns about patient care, radiation physics and safety, preparation and administration of radiopharmaceuticals, diagnostic imaging procedures, radiation detection equipment, computerized imaging cameras, and research procedures.
