Nuclear medicine imaging at St. Catherine Hospital uses Siemens’s Symbia S technology - producing a state-of-the-art image quality. Nuclear medicine is an effective diagnostic tool showing the anatomy or structure of an organ or body part in addition to the function of the organ. This additional "functional information" allows nuclear medicine to diagnose certain diseases and various medical conditions much sooner than other medical imaging examinations. Nuclear medicine can be valuable in the early diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of numerous medical conditions and continues to grow as a powerful diagnostic medical tool.
