Nuclear Medicine Technologists are valued member of the allied health community who prepare and administer radioactive pharmaceuticals and image their distribution in the human body. Unlike X-ray and Computed Tomography, the radiation captured by nuclear medicine cameras originate from within the patient. Nuclear Medicine Technologists must therefore have specialized training in the preparation and administration of radiopharmaceuticals. Technologists must also apply knowledge of radiation physics related to camera operation, computer processing, data reconstruction and quality control.
