Nuclear Medicine Technology

Nuclear Medicine Technology

Associate of Technical Studies Degree

In cooperation with the Nuclear Medicine Institute at The University of Findlay.

Nuclear medicine technologists operate cameras that detect and map a radioactive drug in the patient’s body to create an image on photographic film or computer monitor. They also perform therapy procedures that involve the administration of radioactive substances. The work differs from that of radiology in that nuclear medicine does not create images by projecting X-rays through the patient. The majority of nuclear medicine technologists work in hospitals, with a small amount working in physicians’ offices and clinics, including imaging centers.

Nuclear medicine technologists explain test procedures to patients. They prepare a dosage of the radiopharmaceutical and administer it orally, by injection or by other means. When preparing radiopharmaceuticals, technologists adhere to safety standards that keep the radiation dose to workers and patients as low as possible.
