Nuclear medicine specialists are medical doctors who use radioactive medicines for diagnosis and treatment of certain problems.
Common nuclear medicine tests include bone scans, lung perfusion scans, and HIDA scans for gallbladder function.
Nuclear medicine specialists can be board-certified through the Board of Nuclear Medicine, which is recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties.
