In nuclear medicine, radiation is used to produce a digitized image of a particular organ and provides real-time visuals of both the structure and the function of organs and bones. Our nuclear medicine equipment provides a wide-array of imaging procedures, including:
- Cardiac studies
- Nuclear stress testing
- Routine whole body scans
- Liver scans
- Thyroid scans
These tests can detect heart blockages, hairline fractures, diseases, tumor, abscess and inflammation.
Important Information Regarding Your Procedure
If your insurance company requires a referral or authorization number for diagnostic testing, you MUST have the referral or authorization number with you at the time of your exam. If you arrive for your exam without this information, we will attempt to get the referral/authorization number from your physician's office or insurance company, but please realize that your exam may have to be rescheduled. Thank you for your cooperation.
How I Do Prepare?
Please arrive 20 to 30 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment to allow time to fill out the necessary forms. It is important that you bring any previous films relating to your exam so that our doctors can properly evaluate your results. For your convenience, we have Spanish speaking employees.
**ALL MEDICATIONS MAY BE TAKEN**
If you have questions about these preparations, please contact the Victoria Imaging Center at 386-740-4020.
